what is the right answer for question n4?

Hello fay nh,

You can see the correct answers if you click the 'Finish' button. 

'Check answers' tells you if your answers are correct or not; 'Finish' tells you what the answers are.

Hi, she said ( think positive ) but as i know that we have to use adverb after verb not adjective .
Therefore it should be think positively.
Thanks alot

Hello Keen101,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble watching the video. We know that users in some countries have issues like this, so we try to put alternative links on the pages which might work for you. Look for the link headed 'Can't see video? Click here!' and click on that; I hope that will solve the problem for you.

Hello Fouka,

You are correct that this is a non-standard form and that we would usually use the adverb. However, it is a commonly used phrase which it is best to treat as a fixed idiom. There are other, similar phrases, such as 'Think success!' [think here followed by a noun].

Best wishes,

Hi parvin123,

I'm afraid the videos are not available for download, for technical and legal reasons. However, you can watch them as many times as you wish online, and you can download the transcript and open the page for printing by using the printer-friendly version link.

Best wishes,
