Here are the answers, but what's the question?: 1-4

 

One of the biggest problems for students of English is forming questions. So to make your lives easier (or more difficult), on some of the questions we have given you a choice of answers. But on some you will have to think about your answer.

There are four answers on each page and for each answer, there are six possible questions, and there is only one possible answer that would be naturally used by native speakers, so you may have to choose the correct question very carefully.

Some of the questions may even seem and look correct, so you should read them very carefully!

Good luck!
