Ans 1:

Class : Class 9
It seems that C and B are both correct.... C is correct if you count it as a universal truth, and B is correct if you count it as an experience of the teacher and not referring to the to the science property....

Ans 2:

Class : Class 7
The answer should be C

Ans 3:

Class : Class 7
The answer should be accounted as C because it is a simple scientific fact

Ans 4:

Class : Class 7
C is fully correct as it is a universal fact and remains true for everyone.B can be counted as an example

Ans 5:

Class : Class 9
I fully agree. It is choice 'C'

Ans 6:

Class : Class 8
C should be correct as it is a universal truth

Ans 7:

Class : Class 9
Same even I agree with all the answer should be B

Ans 8:

Class : Class 7
I just can't digest the answer to be 'b'. It isn't possible

Ans 9:

Class : Class 10
Actually ,the answer should be (C).

Ans 10:

Class : Class 9
C is the correct answer....As the statement is a universal fact

Ans 11:

Class : Class 8
'was' cannot be used fr this sentence as it is a universal truth

Ans 12:

Class : Class 9
agreed

Ans 13:

Class : Class 9
Hi Yash. Akash here.Your guess is right.The answer is C as it is a universal truth

Ans 14:

Class : Class 7
The correct answer should be C since the teacher is expressing a universal truth, that's why we put the 'is' at the end. Some people in these replies say that the answer can also be B if we count it as the teacher's personal experience. But if the statement was,"The higher I go, the cooler it gets", then B could be the correct option. The dude did not give even a simple mention of himself in the original sentence, so B is not the correct option. Clearly, the expression is a universal truth, so the correct option is C. SOF should take this thing into consideration and make correction in the answer key.

That is used to introduce a restrictive relative clause.
Which is used to introduce a non-restrictive relative clause.
Example
The garden, that is adjacent to my house is beautiful.
The garden, which is adjacent to my house is beautiful.

In the first one the use of that implies that of all the gardens around my house, the one adjacent to my house is beautiful. It is a restrictive clause because it limits the scope of the noun i.e. garden.

In the second one, the purpose of the sentence is to convey that the garden is beautiful. However, by introducing clause i.e. which is adjacent to my house, the writer intends to present additional information to describe the noun i.e. garden.

The answer would be D . As the noun ends with the letter 's' thus here we apply the plural possessive form of the noun . So the possessive form of John Keats will be John Keats'.

It should be C right ?

Ans 4:

Class : Class 4
No,the answer should be [b].

Ans 5:

Class : Class 9
The correct answer is a,an (option B), as the sound of "E" in European is like "Y" and we use an with letters which have a vowel sound. As the word Asian has the sound of "A" in the first letter, an will be used with it.

Ans 6:

Class : Class 8
no its impossible

Ans 7:

Class : Class 6
B is the correct answer

Ans 8:

Class : Class 4
the answer should be c because European ,Asian both start from vowels

Ans 9:

Class : Class 5
B

Ans 10:

"sell" is a quasi-passive verb which is used in active form but with passive force. e.g: Sugar sells cheap here. Sugar tastes sweet. So, answer (A) is also correct.

Yes, it must be C) Preoccupied... because that's synonymous to busy more than active

Ans 2:

Class : Class 7
Being active can also mean to be energetic or full of stamina. Not only busy

Ans 3:

Class : Class 7
i also think that the correct answer is preoccupied

Ans 4:

Class : Class 9
Preoccupied should be correct.

Ans 5:

Class : Class 7
I believe it should be Preoccupied. It is more appropriate.

Ans 6:

Class : Class 9
the ans is preoccupiedimagine if i sayi am busyand i am preoccupiedand i am i am activeacive means ready to do or in energectic modenot busy

Ans 7:

Class : Class 7
yes, I too think it should be preoccupied. Being active means to do extra-curricular activities, sports etc.

Ans 8:

Class : Class 7
I too think answer should be C preoccupied but on the website it is given busy.

Ans 9:

Class : Class 7
I think both preoccupied and active are correct in different context

Hello Mayank Gupta. Akash here. The answer is A - Active.

Ans 13:

Class : Class 7
Yes, answer should be preoccupied

Ans 14:

Class : Class 8
Active means you are willing to do something with enthusiasm but preoccupied means you are currently focusing on something else and cannot attend any other task

Ans 15:

Class : Class 10

Ans 16:

Class : Class 7
preoccupied is quite similar to busyso i think the answer is marked wrong

Ans 17:

Class : Class 10

Ans 18:

Class : Class 9
preoccupied is correct. for example, the phone line is busy.-the phone line is preoccupied

Ans 19:

Class : Class 7
aren't both preoccupied and active considered synonyms of busy

Ans 20:

Class : Class 8
I also think that preoccupied is the correct answer.

Ans 21:

Class : Class 9
Yeah

Ans 22:

Class : Class 5
I too, think PREOCCUPIED should be appropriate

Ans 23:

Class : Class 9
I think preoccupied is absolutely right (mostly, to be specific)!

Ans 24:

Class : Class 7
Preoccupied is synonymous to busy and should be considered a right answer

Ans 25:

Class : Class 7
I think preoccupied should be correct

Ans 26:

Class : Class 10
preoccupied

Ans 27:

Class : Class 9
exactly!

Ans 28:

Class : Class 8
preoccupied should be the answer as active means you are ready to do something but preoccupied means that you are engrossed in some work

Ans 29:

Class : Class 7
Shouldn't the answer be preoccupied ... because Preoccupied is literally the right synonym for busy . It shows the same in Oxford dictionary as well as Google dictionary

Ans 30:

Class : Class 9
selva , u r wrong. it's preoccupied as synonym of busy is preoccupied

Ans 31:

Class : Class 7
The answer should be preoccupied.

Ans 32:

Class : Class 7
I think answer C should be correct. For example- The phone line is preoccupied.Both option A and C are correct

Ans 33:

Class : Class 7
I think that both Active and Preoccupied are applicable in different situations, hence both are valid options. This invalidates the question as the whole point is that the questions are supposed to have one answer.

Ans 34:

Class : Class 7
i feel like both active and preoccupied are correct in different situations, like Ananyag said.

Ans 35:

Class : Class 7
Ananyag is correct

Ans 36:

Class : Class 7
Checked on google, preoccupy is correct

Ans 37:

Class : Class 8
YUP ANSWER IS PREOCCUPIED

Ans 38:

Class : Class 7
Preoccupied

Ans 39:

Class : Class 7
pre-occupied shoul be correct??

Ans 40:

Class : Class 7
It is preoccupied.. Coz being active doesn't always mean being busy..

Ans 41:

Class : Class 7
Preoccupied is more suitable

Ans 42:

Class : Class 7
The answer should be preoccupied as being active doesn't always mean someone's busy.

Ans 43:

Class : Class 7
EVEN IN GOOGLE DICTIONARY ITS SAYING PREOCCUPIED

Ans 44:

Class : Class 8
It is supposed to be PREOCCUPIED
