I guess most people use all of them. We buy milk and juice in a TetraPak. Is it also called a carton?
I’m also surprised to learn that the British Council website doesn’t work well with Safari on iPad or iPhone. For example, I could not answer the 5. question because I could not pull it down/move it! And that in the year 2020 is quite a thing!

Hi sinuhe69,

Yes, that's right! A TetraPak is a type of carton.

About task 5, I wonder if I can help. You have to just tap or click on the words (not drag or move them). Try tapping on a word first. The two boxes below should turn grey. Then, tap on one of the boxes to put the word inside it. Make sure you tap on the grey box area, and not any words that are already inside the box (as that will replace the word, instead of adding it to the box). I hope that solves the problem, but if not, please let us know again.

Best wishes,

I mostly use all of them for the reasons they are made respectively. But some need to be thrown away as I can't recycle, I usually keep which can be. I usually use tubs, bowls and sometimes jar to store meats in the fridge.

Mostly, i use boxes, plastic and carton. I used them to carry some trash, can ( after drink some beer) and sometime i used plastic to save some food in the freezer.

I've use almost the continuers include packet, tub, tin, bottle, tube and bowl, I am usually using them everyday in my life and except jar and carton due to no drink milk or juice, and maybe I use jar because I buying peanut butter

Actually, I use all of them. But those I use the most for storing food are jars and tubs. Small plastic tubs are very suitable to store food in the refrigerator. I usually keep small jars because I find them really useful when I need to store some baby food or spices; for being made of glass, they preserve better the food and are healthier. For water, when we run out of bottled water during the week, I usually fill up some glass bottles from the tap.

In my daily life I use jug and bottle for water and wine. One thing that I really appreciate now is tubs because I can use them to store food that I cooked.

I commonly use containers as jugs , bottles and tins, I try to use as less as posible plastic containers as food package on it. My family and I ocassionally use bottles or cartons becase we don´t consume some sort of things.

The containers I uses mostly include box, packet, bowl, jar, tube, tub, bottle and tin. I use them as containers (carriers and packaging items) containing some contents which I make use of.

I think the container I use many times is bottle. Because in my daily life I always feel thirsty and need a bottle of water to drink, I really like to drink pure water. I also usually use some containers like bowl (when I have breakfast, lunch or dinner), Jug (when I want to pour water into glass), can (I buy some soft drinks like Coca Cola, Pepsi,...), Box (I usually move house to another place and I need it to put something in), Packet (when I go to the convenient store and need to buy something like snacks, chocolate,... and they are usually put in packets), Tube (an example is toothpaste, you have to brush your teeth every day including days and nights to protect your teeth from germs).
