    B. It's
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "it's." "It's" is a contraction of "it is" or "it has." In this context, "it's" is the correct choice because it shows possession. The word "mine" suggests ownership, and "it's" indicates that something belongs to "it."

      You're

    Correct Answer
    B. You're

      There

    Correct Answer
    A. Their
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "their". In this sentence, "their" is used to show possession. It indicates that the people being referred to have left their own home because of the storm. "They're" is a contraction of "they are" and would not make sense in this context. "There" is used to indicate a location and does not fit grammatically or logically in this sentence.

    • C.

      Where

    Correct Answer
    A. We're
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "We're." This is because the sentence is talking about a group of people, indicating that they are currently in the process of going somewhere. "We're" is the contraction of "we are," which fits the context of the sentence.

    Correct Answer
    A. Whose
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Whose." "Whose" is used to ask about possession or ownership. In this sentence, it is asking about the ownership of the bike. "Who's" is a contraction of "who is" or "who has" and would not make sense in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The children were so ____________ that the teacher had to yell to be heard.

    Correct Answer
    obstreperous
    noisy
    unruly
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "obstreperous, noisy, unruly". The word "obstreperous" means noisy and difficult to control, which fits the context of the sentence. Similarly, "noisy" and "unruly" both describe the behavior of the children that required the teacher to yell in order to be heard. Therefore, all three words can be used interchangeably to convey the same meaning in this context.

    The correct answer is "indigenous, native." Both words mean originating or occurring naturally in a particular place. In the given sentence, the speaker is expressing doubt about whether the flowers are naturally found in New England, as they have never seen them before. Therefore, both "indigenous" and "native" accurately convey the intended meaning.

    Roberto pretended to know a lot about the opera, but he was really just a dilettante, dabbler, amateur. This means that Roberto claimed to have extensive knowledge about opera, but in reality, he only had superficial or limited understanding. He lacked the expertise and depth of knowledge that a true connoisseur or expert would possess.
