1.

A: Hello! Is Mike there, please? B: Yes, but he _________________ speak to you at the moment because he’s driving.

Answer: Can't
Explanation:
In the given context, "can't" is used to indicate that Mike is currently unable to speak, and the reason for this inability is that he is driving. It implies a temporary restriction or incapacity due to the ongoing activity of driving.
2.

I’m sorry, but you ______________ speak Spanish in class. You have to speak only English!

Answer: Mustn't
Explanation:
The correct answer is "mustn't" because it indicates that speaking Spanish in class is prohibited or not allowed. It implies a strong obligation or requirement to only speak English. "Don't have to" would suggest that it is optional or not necessary to speak Spanish, which is not the intended meaning in this context.
3.

Jack is running very __________, but I don’t think he can win.

Answer: Fast
Explanation:
The word "fast" is the correct answer because it is the appropriate adverb to describe how Jack is running. "Fastly" is not a word in the English language, so it is not a valid option.
4.

We always work __________ in English class!

Answer: Hard
Explanation:
In English lessons, we always work "hard." This means that we put in a lot of effort and dedication into our work. The word "hardly" means almost not at all or barely, which is the opposite of what is being conveyed in the given statement. Therefore, the correct answer is "hard."
5.

You must climb __________. You don’t want to fall.

Answer: Carefully
Explanation:
The correct answer is "carefully" because it is an adverb that describes how the action of climbing should be done. Since the sentence mentions not wanting to fall, it implies that caution and precision are necessary while climbing. Therefore, "carefully" is the appropriate adverb to use in this context.
6.

My dad speaks Spanish very __________. 

Answer: Well
Explanation:
The correct answer is "well" because it is used as an adverb to describe the verb "speaks." In this context, "well" means that the dad is proficient or skilled in speaking Spanish. "Good" is an adjective and would not be the appropriate word to describe speaking ability.
7.

'Do you can play football very well?' Is the sentence correct?

Answer: No
Explanation:
The given sentence is not correct because it contains an error in subject-verb agreement. The correct form should be "Can you play football very well?" where the subject "you" is followed by the correct form of the verb "can".
8.

The students are waiting patient for their teacher. Is the sentence correct?

Answer: No
Explanation:
The sentence is incorrect because the word "patient" should be replaced with "patiently." "Patient" is an adjective that describes a person's ability to tolerate something, while "patiently" is an adverb that describes how someone is waiting. Therefore, the correct sentence should be "The students are waiting patiently for their teacher."
9.

Which of the following sentences is grammatically correct?

Answer: I can’t do this test easily; it’s very difficult.
Explanation:
The correct sentence uses a semicolon to connect the two independent clauses: "I can’t do this test easily" and "It’s very difficult." A semicolon is appropriate here because the two clauses are closely related, and it helps to create a clear and concise connection between them. The semicolon indicates a stronger separation than a comma but less than a period, emphasizing the close relationship between the ideas.
10.

Every time I go skating, I __________ lots of times!

Answer: Fall
Explanation:
The correct answer is "fall" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "I" requires the verb form "fall." The verb "fell" is in the past tense, so it is not the correct answer. Similarly, "falls" is the third-person singular form of the verb, which does not agree with the subject "I." Therefore, the correct verb form is "fall."
11.

My sister and I never __________ our bikes to school.

Answer: Ride
Explanation:
The correct answer is "ride" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "My sister and I" is plural. Therefore, the verb should also be in the plural form "ride".
12.

Can your dog __________ over that chair?

Answer: Jump
Explanation:
The question is asking about the ability of the dog to perform an action. The word "can" indicates the present tense and the blank space should be filled with a verb that matches this tense. Among the options provided, "jump" is the only verb that is in the present tense. Therefore, the correct answer is "jump."
13.

Is it Countable or Uncountable? Burger.

Answer: Countable
Explanation:
The word "Burger" refers to a specific type of food item that is typically made with a patty, bun, and various toppings. It is a singular noun that can be counted, as we can say "one burger" or "two burgers." Therefore, "countable" is the correct answer.
14.

Is it Countable or Uncountable? Butter.

Answer: Uncountable
Explanation:
Butter is considered uncountable because it is a substance that cannot be easily separated into individual units. It is typically measured or used in a continuous mass or quantity, rather than being counted as separate items.
15.

I don’t eat _______________ cheese because my mother never buys it.

Answer: Much
Explanation:
The word "much" is the correct answer because it is used to refer to an uncountable noun like cheese. In this sentence, the speaker is saying that they don't eat a large quantity of cheese because their mother never buys it. Since cheese is an uncountable noun, we use "much" to indicate a large amount or quantity.
16.

They are building ___________new flats on our road.

Answer: Some
Explanation:
The correct answer is "some" because it indicates an unspecified amount or number of new flats being built in our road. It implies that there are at least a few new flats being constructed, but the exact quantity is not specified.
17.

My sister eats _________________burgers, and that’s not good for her.

Answer: A lot of
Explanation:
The correct answer is "a lot of". In the sentence, the word "eats" is followed by a noun, which requires the use of the phrase "a lot of" to indicate a large quantity. "A lot" alone would not be grammatically correct in this context. Therefore, "a lot of" is the appropriate choice to complete the sentence.
18.

You __________ watch a lot of T.V. because it’s not good for your eyes.

Answer: Shouldn't
Explanation:
Watching a lot of TV is not good for your eyes, so the correct answer is "shouldn't." This implies that it is not advisable or recommended to watch a lot of TV due to the potential harm it can cause to the eyes.
19.

You __________ read this book. It’s fantastic!

Answer: Should
Explanation:
The word "should" is the correct answer because it indicates that the person is recommending or suggesting that the reader should read the book. The phrase "It's fantastic!" further emphasizes the positive recommendation.
20.

A ___ of water

Answer: Bottle 
Explanation:
In this question, the phrase "a ___ of water" suggests that we need to fill in the blank with a word that can be used to measure water. While both "piece" and "slice" do not fit this context, "bottle" is a suitable answer as it is commonly used to hold and measure water.
