English Quiz 003

Fill in the blanks with the correct alternative: The hotel was not too expensive_____

The expanded form of the sentence would be: ‘The hotel was not too expensive, was it (expensive according to you)?’ The sentence has a question tag at the end. The sentence is a negative sentence and thus the question tag at the end must carry a positive tag. The tense of the tag must be similar to that of the sentence. Option 1 satisfies both these criterion.

Out of the four alternatives, choose the one which best expresses the opposite meaning of the given word: Wary

The word ‘wary’ means to be ‘careful after considering all options’. Out of the four options given ‘daring’ and ‘rash’ are adjectives used for a person who is not wary. However, ‘rash’ is the correct answer as a rash person does not give a thought about the outcome of his actions and takes unnecessary risks.

Out of four alternatives, choose the one which can be substituted for the given word/sentences: Not suitable for eating

Here ‘uneatable’ and ‘inedible’ mean the same but the word ‘Inedible’ suits best since it means not suitable for eating.

Choose the correct alternative out of the four to fill in the blank: Leila said the new restaurant was nothing to write about. She thought it was ______.

People tend to discuss or write about objects when they range on the extremes of good and bad ,i.e: either it is too good or too bad. When the context of the sentence states that there was nothing to write about the restaurant that means it was mediocre. So, the correct phrase to fill the blank is ‘just average’.

Four words are given in each question, out of which only one word is correctly spelt. Mark the correctly spelt word.

‘Immaculate’ is correctly spelt. It means 'perfectly clean'.
