    What is an irony?

    • A.

      It's a way of making fun of others without they knowing it.

    • B.

      It's the difference between what happens and what is expected to happen in a story.

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    B. It's the difference between what happens and what is expected to happen in a story.
    Explanation
    Irony is a literary device that occurs when there is a contrast between what is expected to happen and what actually happens. It involves a discrepancy between appearance and reality, creating a sense of surprise or humor. It is not necessarily about making fun of others without their knowledge or solely for the purpose of making a story funny. Instead, irony highlights the unexpected or contradictory aspects of a situation, adding depth and complexity to a story.

    Correct Answer
    A. Residents

    C. Positive
    Explanation
    The word "positive" is the correct answer because it is the only word that accurately describes something as good or useful. "Similarities" refers to things that are alike, "individuals" refers to separate persons, and "residents" refers to people who live in a particular place. Only "positive" fits the definition of good or useful.

    Explanation
    The word "individuals" best fits the definition of "people; not a whole group." It refers to separate, distinct persons rather than a collective or large group. The other options, such as "residents," "focus," and "assumed," do not accurately convey the meaning of individuals as specified in the definition.

    Explanation
    The word "focus" is the correct answer because it means to pay special attention to a particular person or thing instead of others.

The other options, "distributes," "rejected," and "assumed," do not convey the same meaning and are not suitable for the given definition.

    bariers
    barers
    barrier
    barrer
    barier
    barer
    Explanation

    Complete the next sentence: The boys don't speak to each other, they are _____________.

    Correct Answer
    enemies
    enemis
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "enemies". This is because the sentence states that the boys don't speak to each other, which implies a lack of communication and a hostile relationship. The word "enemies" accurately describes this situation. "Enemis" is not a correct spelling and is therefore not the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Complete the next sentence: The girls ____________ their friendship by calling each other every day.

    Correct Answer
    cultivate
    cultivat
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "cultivate". This word means to foster or nurture something, in this case, their friendship. By calling each other every day, the girls are actively working to develop and strengthen their bond. The word "cultivat" is not a valid word in English, so it is not the correct answer.

Political discussions can lead to disagreements and conflicts among individuals who hold different beliefs or opinions. Additionally, discussing political topics can sometimes be seen as impolite or inappropriate in certain social settings. Therefore, some people prefer to avoid these discussions altogether in order to maintain harmony and avoid potential conflicts.

    • A.

      Dependent

    • B.

      Independent

    Correct Answer
    B. Independent
    Explanation
    The underlined clause in the sentence "Few people signed up for the camp, but it was still a success" is an independent clause.

    Explanation

    Explanation
    The underlined clause in the sentence "The teens learnt to interact with each other, and they had a good time, too" is an independent clause.

      Independent

    Correct Answer
    B. Independent
    Explanation
    The underlined clause in the sentence "The counselors worked hard as they encouraged the teenagers to talk with each other" is an independent clause. It can stand alone as a complete sentence because it has a subject (they) and a verb (encouraged) and expresses a complete thought. The conjunction "as" is used to show the relationship between the two clauses, but the underlined clause can still function independently.

    Correct Answer
    A. Dependent
    Explanation

It starts with the subordinating conjunction "because" which indicates that it cannot stand alone as a complete sentence and relies on the main clause "The campers sometimes got angry" to make sense.
