The phrase "It's too hot here" would imply that the heat is uncomfortable or unbearable, which contradicts the fact that Jo is having a great time.

    The tea is________ hot for me to drink.

    • A.

      Too

    • B.

      So

    • C.

      Very

    Correct Answer
    A. Too
    Explanation
    The word "too" is the correct answer because it indicates that the tea is excessively hot for the speaker to drink. It suggests that the temperature of the tea surpasses their tolerance level or preference. The word "so" is not suitable in this context as it implies a degree of intensity or extent rather than excessiveness. "Very" also does not convey the same meaning as "too" because it simply denotes a high level of hotness without implying that it is beyond what the speaker can handle.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The evening was__________ cold.

    • A.

      Very

    • B.

      Too

    • C.

      Either could be used here

    Correct Answer
    C. Either could be used here
    Explanation
    Both "very" and "too" can be used to describe the level of coldness in the evening. "Very" indicates a high degree of coldness, while "too" suggests that the coldness is excessive or beyond what is comfortable. Therefore, either word can be used to convey the idea that the evening was cold.

    • A.

      Very

    • B.

      Too

    • C.

      Either could be used here

    Correct Answer
    B. Too
    Explanation
    The word "too" is the correct answer because it is used to indicate an excessive amount or degree. In this sentence, "too" is used to convey that there are an excessive number of mistakes in the essay. The word "very" would not be suitable in this context as it does not convey the same level of excessiveness. Therefore, "too" is the correct choice to accurately describe the number of mistakes in the essay.
