    When a window is broken but not separated into pieces, it is ____________.

    • A.

      Cracked

    • B.

      Chipped

    • C.

      Torn

    • D.

      Scratched

    Correct Answer
    A. Cracked
    Explanation
    When a window is cracked, it means that there is a line or lines on the surface of the glass, indicating that it has been damaged. Unlike chipped or torn, which imply more severe damage or separation of the material, a cracked window is still intact and not broken into pieces. Scratched refers to a different type of damage, where the surface of the glass has been scraped or marked. Therefore, cracked is the most appropriate term to describe a window that is broken but not separated into pieces.
