She ____ (smile) at me.

Answer: Smiles
The correct answer is "smiles" because the subject "she" is singular and the verb must agree with it in the present tense. Verb conjugation in English requires that verbs match their subjects in number and tense, making "smiles" the correct singular, present tense form of "smile" for the subject "she." This agreement is fundamental in ensuring that sentences are grammatically correct and clearly understood.

Last month, I left Lombok Island. I ____(go) there with a group from the school.

Answer: Went
The correct answer is "went". The sentence is in the past tense, indicated by "Last month," thus the verb must also be in the past tense. "Went" is the past tense form of "go," fitting the timeline of the narrative. Using the correct tense helps maintain consistency in the timeline of events described.

The person ____(who) you met this morning was my uncle.

Answer: Whom
The correct answer is "whom". In this sentence, "whom" is used as the object of the verb "met". It refers to the person that the speaker met. This use of "whom" as an object pronoun is formal and grammatically precise, enhancing the clarity and correctness of the sentence.

There is ____ new kid in class. His name is Rio.

Answer: A
In this sentence, "new kid" is a singular countable noun starting with a consonant sound. When using indefinite articles, we use "a" before singular countable nouns starting with a consonant sound. Therefore, the correct answer is "a." This usage is crucial for grammatical accuracy in specifying one of potentially many subjects in a general context.

My house _____ a small garden.

Answer: Has got
The correct answer is "Has got" because it is the correct form of the verb "to have" in the present tense for the subject "My house". "Has got" is commonly used in British English to indicate possession or ownership, and in this case, it implies that the speaker's house possesses a small garden. This form enhances the descriptive quality of the sentence.

Sam: There are two books on the table? Kim: No, there aren’t. ______ one book. Sam: Oh, I see. The word to fill in the blank is:

Answer: There is
The correct answer is "There is" because Kim is correcting Sam's statement about there being two books on the table by saying that there is only one book. This correction is important for providing accurate information and aligns with grammatical rules for stating the presence of a singular noun.

She always ______ (get up) at 5 AM every day. 

Answer: Gets up
The correct answer is "Gets up" because the sentence is in the present tense and refers to a habitual action. "Gets up" is the correct form of the verb "get" for the third person singular subject "she". This consistent use of the present simple tense for habitual actions is crucial for clear communication of routine activities.

This is Nick, and this is Carla. _____ in my class.

Answer: They are
The correct answer is "They are" because the subject "Nick and Carla" is plural, so the verb should also be in the plural form. The use of "are" aligns with the plural subject "they," ensuring grammatical agreement which is fundamental for accurate and clear expression in English.

Susan _____ (read) a novel after school every day.

Answer: Reads
The correct answer is "Reads." The sentence is in the present tense and refers to a habitual action that Susan does every day after school. Therefore, the present simple tense "reads" is the appropriate form of the verb to use in this context, effectively communicating a routine activity.

Ronnie loves playing basketball with _____ friends twice a week.

Answer: His
The correct answer is "His" because "Ronnie" is a male name, and "his" is the possessive pronoun used to show ownership or association with a male singular noun. Therefore, it indicates that Ronnie loves playing basketball with his own friends twice a week. The use of the correct possessive pronoun ensures clarity in describing relationships and ownership, which is essential in English grammar.

The students ________ English and French at school.

Answer: Study
The correct answer is "Study" because it agrees with the plural subject "students" and is in the present tense, which is appropriate for an action that is currently happening. Using the correct verb form in the present simple tense is crucial for accurate and clear communication, particularly in academic settings where precise language is needed to describe ongoing or habitual activities.

You and I _____ best friends.

Answer: Are
The correct answer is "Are" because the subject "You and I" is plural, so the verb should also be in the plural form. This grammatical agreement between subject and verb is vital for clear and correct sentences. It also emphasizes the unity or collective aspect of "You and I," enhancing the meaning of the statement.

Robbie Dowling wants to win free-running competitions. The opposite of the Italic word is ________.

Answer: Lose
Robbie Dowling's goal is to win free-running competitions, so the opposite of this would be to lose. Understanding antonyms, or opposites, is important for building vocabulary and enhancing comprehension. This knowledge aids in grasping the full context of discussions and writings, especially in competitive scenarios.

She _____ completed her homework.

Answer: Has
The correct answer is "Has" because it agrees with the subject "she" which is third person singular. "Have" is used for first-person singular and plural subjects, while "is" and "was" are forms of the verb "to be" and do not indicate the completion of an action. Correct verb conjugation, particularly in the present perfect tense, is crucial for indicating actions that have been completed at an unspecified time before now, adding depth to the temporal understanding of the events described.

There were ____ students in the class.

Answer: Some
The word "some" is used to indicate an unspecified or indefinite number of students in the class. It implies that there were at least a few students, but the exact number is unknown. This usage is typical in English to describe an unspecified quantity, which helps keep the statement flexible while providing some information about quantity.
