I have some questions on S&T and grammer qns
1. I kept sneezing as the room was dusty.
__________________________ so __________________ that ______________.
Ans: The room was so dusty that I kept sneezing.
The answer is correct.
2. "What did you do in school yesterday?" Karen asked Mark.
Ans: Karen asked Mark what he had done in school the day before.
The answer is correct as well. Always take note that the past tense in
reported speech is changed to past perfect tense.
3. The sums were difficult. I could not solve them.
Ans: The sums were too difficult, , I could not solve them.
The answer is wrong here. 'too' goes with 'to'.
The answer should be:
The sums were too difficult for me to solve.
a. Will you jump _____ the chance to climb Mount Everest?
The answer is 'at'.
If you jump on/into/over, it refers to a literal sense of jumping on/
into/over something else.
To jump at the chance would mean to eagerly take up an opportunity.
So here, the 'jump' is idiomatic and not literal.
b. The family of threes always _____ at Woodland Stadium
Ans : joys
Do you mean 'jogs'? If so, the answer is singular because you
are referring to one family and not the three people that make up
c. I witnessed the robber _____ the security guard at the bank.
The answer is correct, an easy way to remember this is Verb-Noun-Verb
"The robber" - Noun
The last verb is always in the root form or it can be in the continuous form
(ing). There are some exceptions where the 'ing' form is not used.
- I made her crying (wrong)
- I made her cry (correct)
d. The three dollars that you see on the table now ____ to Seta.
The answer is correct because money is singular unless you are referring
to the number of coins or dollar notes:
- There are three 50-cent coins here.
Btw, can continue on giving the example for S&T and common mistakes?
Sure, no problem, will do so soon
