1.

It is freezing at night. I need a …. when I sleep.

Answer: Blanket
Explanation:
A blanket is a thick, warm cover that people use to stay warm while sleeping, especially during cold nights. The context of the sentence indicates that the speaker is looking for something to provide warmth while they sleep. A belt, hat, or shoes would not be appropriate for this purpose. A blanket is specifically designed to cover the body and trap heat, making it the correct choice for staying warm in freezing temperatures. This makes "blanket" the most logical and accurate answer in the given context.
2.

Dede has an uncle. The son of his uncle is his…

Answer: Cousin
Explanation:
The son of Dede's uncle is Dede's cousin. In family relationships, an uncle's children are referred to as cousins. The other options, such as father, nephew, and grandfather, describe different familial relationships. A father is a male parent, a nephew is the son of a sibling, and a grandfather is the father of one's parent. In this case, "cousin" accurately describes the relationship between Dede and the son of his uncle, making it the correct answer.
3.

My father’s mother is my …

Answer: Grandmother
Explanation:
My father's mother is my grandmother. In family relationships, the mother of your father is your grandmother. The other options, such as grandfather, mother, and aunt, describe different familial relationships. A grandfather is the father of your parent, a mother is your female parent, and an aunt is your parent's sister. Therefore, the correct term for your father's mother is "grandmother," making it the accurate choice in this context.
4.

My father is a surgeon. He works in a…

Answer: Hospital
Explanation:
A surgeon is a medical doctor who performs operations. Therefore, the correct workplace for a surgeon is a hospital. Hospitals are healthcare institutions where surgeries and other medical treatments are conducted. The other options, such as a bank, post office, and museum, are unrelated to medical professions. Banks deal with financial transactions, post offices handle mail, and museums display artifacts and exhibits. Thus, the appropriate workplace for a surgeon, considering their role and duties, is a hospital.
5.

…..! The street is slippery.

Answer: Be careful
Explanation:
"Be careful" is the appropriate response when warning someone about a slippery street. It advises caution to prevent slipping and falling. The other options, such as "Be quiet," "Be nice," and "Be diligent," do not fit the context of a warning about a hazardous condition. "Be quiet" suggests reducing noise, "Be nice" encourages kindness, and "Be diligent" suggests careful and persistent work. Therefore, "Be careful" correctly matches the warning context of the slippery street, making it the correct answer.
6.

Can you ____ this work before twelve o’clock? 

Answer: Finish
Explanation:
The correct verb form here is "finish," which fits the structure of the question "Can you finish this work before twelve o’clock?" "Started" and "ended" are past tense forms and do not fit the context of a question about future capability. "Finished" is the past participle and does not fit the context either. Therefore, "finish" is the appropriate choice, indicating the completion of work within the specified time frame.
7.

My mother ____________ fried rice last night.

Answer: Cooked
Explanation:
The correct verb form here is "cooked," which is the past tense of "cook," fitting the context of an action that took place in the past ("last night"). "Cooking" is the present participle and does not fit this past tense context. "Baking" refers to cooking food in an oven, which is not appropriate here as the action described is frying. "Cook" is the base form of the verb and does not fit the sentence's past tense context. Therefore, "cooked" is the correct choice to complete the sentence accurately.
8.

My sister ___________ watching television. 

Answer: Is
Explanation:
The correct verb form here is "is," which is the present tense of the verb "to be" used with singular subjects like "my sister." The sentence structure "is watching" indicates a present continuous action. "Are" is used with plural subjects, "were" is the past tense and used with plural subjects or formal singular, and "have" is a present tense auxiliary verb used with plural subjects or with "I/you/we/they." Therefore, "is" correctly fits the sentence, indicating that the sister is currently watching television.
9.

I  _________ football yesterday.

Answer: Played
Explanation:
The correct verb form here is "played," which is the past tense of "play" and fits the context of an action that took place in the past ("yesterday"). "Play" is the base form and does not indicate past tense. "Had played" is the past perfect tense, which is used to describe an action that was completed before another past action, but it is unnecessary here. "Plays" is the present tense form used with third-person singular subjects. Therefore, "played" is the appropriate choice to complete the sentence correctly.
10.

I usually ________ the television in the evening.

Answer: Watch
Explanation:
The correct verb here is "watch," which is used to describe the action of viewing television. The word "usually" indicates a habitual action, so the present simple tense "watch" is appropriate. "See" generally means to perceive with the eyes and is not specific to viewing TV. "Saw" is the past tense of "see" and does not fit the habitual context. "Sees" is the present tense form used with third-person singular subjects. Therefore, "watch" is the correct choice for this sentence.
11.

The tiger ........ on him and killed him.

Answer: Pounced
Explanation:
The correct verb form here is "pounced," which is the past tense of "pounce." The sentence describes an action that happened in the past, so the past tense is needed. "Pounce" is the base form and does not fit the past tense context. "Pierce" and "pierced" describe a different action (to make a hole through something), which does not fit the context of a tiger attack. Therefore, "pounced" is the correct answer as it accurately describes the tiger's sudden leap and attack in the past.
12.

The river ......... very fast.

Answer: Flows
Explanation:
The correct verb form here is "flows," which is the present tense of "flow" used for third-person singular subjects like "the river." "Flow" is the base form of the verb and is not correct in this context. "Flew" is the past tense of "fly," which means to move through the air, and is not relevant here. "Fly" is the base form of the verb for flying. Therefore, "flows" is the appropriate choice to describe the continuous movement of the river's water.
13.

Don't ........ an apple without asking me.

Answer: Eat
Explanation:
The correct verb here is "eat," which is the base form used in the imperative sentence "Don't eat an apple without asking me." "Fill" and "filled" refer to putting something into a container, which does not fit the context of consuming an apple. "Ate" is the past tense of "eat," which is not appropriate in this imperative construction. Therefore, "eat" correctly fits the sentence, indicating the action that should not be taken without permission.
14.

Make sure you ...... him.

Answer: Catch
Explanation:
The correct verb form here is "catch," which fits the imperative structure "Make sure you catch him." "Caught" is the past tense of "catch" and does not fit the context of giving instructions or advice. "Catching" is the present participle and is not suitable here. "Has caught" is the present perfect tense, which also does not fit the imperative context. Therefore, "catch" is the appropriate choice to complete the sentence correctly, indicating the action that should be ensured.
15.

We have to ........ this now.

Answer: Do
Explanation:
The correct verb form here is "do," which fits the infinitive structure "We have to do this now." "Did" is the past tense of "do" and is not appropriate in this context. "Done" is the past participle of "do" and also does not fit here. "Have done" is the present perfect tense and is not suitable in this sentence structure. Therefore, "do" is the correct choice, indicating the action that needs to be performed immediately.
