Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A friend is going to lend me some money. Otherwise, I couldn't ____________ the trip.

    • A.

      Buy

    • B.

      Afford

    • C.

      Go

    Correct Answer
    B. Afford
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "afford". This is because the sentence suggests that without the friend lending money, the person would not have enough money to go on the trip. "Afford" means to have enough money or resources to be able to pay for or do something. Therefore, the person needs to be able to afford the trip in order to go.

  • 2. 

    I've _________ the same trip by car so often I could do it with my eyes shut.

    • A.

      Done

    • B.

      Made

    • C.

      Gone

    Correct Answer
    B. Made
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "made". In this sentence, "made" is the correct verb to use because it indicates that the speaker has performed or completed the action of taking the trip by car multiple times. "Done" and "gone" would not convey the same meaning in this context.

  • 3. 

    Our camping trip was _______ by heavy rain. We ended up wet and upset.

    • A.

      Ruined

    • B.

      Damaged

    • C.

      Cancelled

    Correct Answer
    A. Ruined
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ruined" because it means that the camping trip was completely spoiled or destroyed by the heavy rain. This explains why the speaker and the others ended up wet and upset. The other options, "damaged" and "cancelled," do not convey the same level of negative impact as "ruined" does in this context.

    • A.

      Peak

    • B.

      Highlight

    • C.

      Importance

    Correct Answer
    B. Highlight
    Explanation
    The word "highlight" is the correct answer because it means the most memorable or important part of something. In this context, the visit to the British Museum was the most significant or memorable aspect of the trip to London.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The full _________ of the trip, including travel insurance, will be around €1000.

    • A.

      Price

    • B.

      Cost

    • C.

      Spending

    Correct Answer
    B. Cost
    Explanation
    The sentence is discussing the total amount of money required for the trip, including travel insurance. The word "cost" accurately conveys the meaning of the sentence, as it refers to the total expenditure or expense involved in the trip. Both "price" and "spending" are not as suitable in this context, as "price" typically refers to the amount paid for a specific item or service, while "spending" generally refers to the act of using money.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I have a piece of volcanic rock as a ___________ of my trip to Volcano Lanin in Patagonia.

    • A.

      Memory

    • B.

      Remembrance

    • C.

      Souvenir

    Correct Answer
    C. Souvenir
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "souvenir". A souvenir is an item that is kept as a reminder or memento of a particular place or event. In this case, the person has a piece of volcanic rock as a souvenir from their trip to Volcano Lanin in Patagonia. This item serves as a tangible representation of their experience and helps them remember and cherish the memories associated with their trip.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    I have to go to Oxford and back. It's about a 60 mile ____________ trip. Enjoy it! It's a beautiful university city.

    • A.

      Round

    • B.

      Around

    • C.

      Go and back

    Correct Answer
    A. Round
    Explanation
    The phrase "go to Oxford and back" suggests that the person needs to travel from their current location to Oxford and then return. The word "round" is commonly used to describe a trip that starts and ends at the same place, indicating that the person will be going to Oxford and then returning to their starting point. Therefore, "round" is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    • A.

      Overseas

    • B.

      Outside

    • C.

      Abroad

    Correct Answer
    C. Abroad
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "overseas" and "abroad". Both words can be used to describe traveling to a different country or continent. In this context, the person is planning their first trip to Australia, which is outside of their home country, making both "overseas" and "abroad" suitable choices.
