    A large furry animal. 

    • A.

      Bear

    • B.

      Bare

    Correct Answer
    A. Bear
    Explanation
    The given description of a "large furry animal" matches the characteristics of a bear. Bears are known for their large size and fur, making them a suitable answer. "Bare" does not fit the description as it means lacking clothing or covering.

    • B.

      Too

    • C.

      To

    Correct Answer

      Hair

    • B.

      Hare

    Correct Answer
    A. Hair
    Explanation
    The given correct answer for this question is "Hair" because it is the most common and logical interpretation of the phrase "The stuff on top of your head". Hair is a natural feature that grows on the top of a person's head, providing protection and insulation. The other option, "Hare", refers to a type of animal and does not make sense in the context of the question.

    B. Won
    Explanation
    The word "Won" is the correct answer because it is the past tense of the verb "win". In the given question, it is stated that you will receive a trophy if you have something. Therefore, "Won" is the appropriate choice as it indicates that you have achieved victory or success in a competition or game.

    Explanation
    Castles can be built at the sea, as many historical castles have been constructed near coastlines or on islands. These castles often served as defensive structures and provided strategic advantages due to their proximity to water bodies. They could be easily accessed by ships and offered protection against potential invaders. Additionally, the sea provided a source of food and transportation for the castle inhabitants. Therefore, building castles at the sea was a practical and strategic choice throughout history.

    Correct Answer
    A. Hear
    Explanation
    The word "hear" is the correct answer because the question states that you should use your ears to do this. "Hear" is the only word out of the two options that relate to using your ears to perceive sound. "Here" refers to a location.

    When something cannot hold something up it is...

    • A.

      Weak

    • B.

      Week

    • C.

      There

    Correct Answer
    B. Their
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Their". In this context, "Their" is the possessive pronoun that indicates ownership. It suggests that it was someone else's turn to bring the lollies, not the speaker's or any other specific person's.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    I am the colour of the sky and oceans

    • A.

      Blew

    • B.

      Blue

    Correct Answer
    B. Blue
    Explanation
    Blue is the correct answer because it is a color that is often associated with the sky and oceans. The color blue is commonly used to represent these natural elements due to their similar hue. Additionally, the word "blew" is a past tense verb and does not accurately describe the color being referenced in the statement.

    B. Male
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Male" because the question is asking for a word that completes the sentence "A boy is a ____." The word "Mail" refers to letters that are delivered by post, but the word "Male" refers to the gender of a boy.

      Aloud

    • B.

Therefore, "allowed" is the appropriate term to use in this scenario.
