Thanks for the exercise :-)

Hi.

My answer is correct but it appears as an error. When I get the result looks like this:

"1. Your answer: English is spoken here. They SPEAK ENGLISH HERE.
Correct answer: English is spoken here. They SPEAK ENGLISH HERE. "

Hello bastet_cmrm,

I've tested the activity and it seems to be working fine to me. Is it possible that you included the full stop [.] at the end of the sentence? The full stop is already there, so if you type it there will be two and the sentence will not be accepted. Please try again, making sure that you do not include the full stop. Please also make sure that you use capital letters correctly.

Please let us know if this solves the problem.

Best wishes,

Hello,

Is is correct to say:
1. How *can* you get from London to Oxford.
2.They *will* charge you if you pay by credit card.

Hello kwia,

Yes, those are grammatically correct. Of course, whether they are correct in a given context is a different question - that will depend on the context.

hi

sorry... there are many Europeans were working in the factory, which one is right..

Hi janani20,

The correct form would be:

There are many Europeans working in the factory shocked by seeing them.

The sentence is entirely in the present, though it looks like it is in the past. This is because it is an example of ellipsis - missing out words which are not necessary. If we put these words back in then you will see that what you thought was a past form is in fact a present passive form:

There are many Europeans (who are) working in the factory (who are) shocked by seeing them.

I hope that helps to clarify it for you. You can find more information on these structures here.

Best wishes,

hi,

"There are many Europeans working in the factory or there are many Europeans working in the factory shocked by seeing them ", which one is correct ? I am very confused in past tense by using plural form and present tense by using plural form... please explain me...

I got hi scores in other test, but not in this test.
this is not about easy or difficult test, ... I think it is not clear enough to do right answers.
