Subject :IEO    Class : Class 7

Ans 1:

Class : Class 7
The answer should be C

Ans 2:

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

Ans 3:

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 4:

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 5:

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

Ans 6:

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

Ans 7:

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

Ans 8:

Class : Class 8
The answer should be accounted as C because it is a simple scientific fact

Ans 9:

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.

Ans 10:

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

Ans 11:

Class : Class 9
agreed

Ans 12:

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

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

Ans 15:

Class : Class 8
The answer should be Option C, because the teacher says that the higher you go, the cooler it is. And this statement is a universal truth and a scientifically proven fact. We all know that in the case of a universal truth or habitual fact, the sentence in indirect statement is not changed. The statement is repeated as it is. Therefore, the answer should be C. And as for the ones advocating Option B as a suitable answer, I'd like to remind them that the teacher has not mentioned themselves. They have only stated a universal truth. Thus, Option B is not a suitable option. I hereby request SOF to take this and other such questions in consideration and make the needed corrections.

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'.

Class : Class 7
It should be C right ?

Ans 2:

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 3:

Class : Class 7
Can you please tell the answer of this question.Thank you.

Ans 4:

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

Ans 5:

Class : Class 9
no its impossible

Ans 6:

Class : Class 9
It’s not a sound of “Y”. It’s a sound of “U”

Ans 7:

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

Ans 8:

Class : Class 5
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 9:

Class : Class 5
B

Ans 10:

Class : Class 7
B is the correct answer

Ans 11:

Class : Class 5
It should be B because ''E'' sounds like ''Y'' as you know ''Y'' is not a vowel so it is B.

Ans 12:

Class : Class 4

Ans 13:

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.

"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.

Ans 3:

Class : Class 8
The answer is preoccupied-Class

Ans 4:

Class : Class 7
I think preoccupied should be correct

Ans 5:

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

Ans 6:

Class : Class 8
It is supposed to be PREOCCUPIED

Ans 7:

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

Ans 8:

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 9:

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

Ans 10:

Class : Class 7
Yes, answer should be preoccupied

Ans 11:

Class : Class 6
Preoccupied should be correct.

Ans 12:

Class : Class 8
yes, I too think it should be preoccupied. Being active means to do extra-curricular activities, sports etc.

Ans 13:

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

Ans 14:

Class : Class 7
The answer should be preoccupied.

Ans 15:

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

Ans 16:

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

Ans 17:

Class : Class 9
exactly!

Ans 18:

Class : Class 7
Should be preoccupied....

Ans 19:

Class : Class 9
Hello Mayank Gupta. Akash here. The answer is A - Active.

Ans 20:

Class : Class 9
I believe it should be Preoccupied. It is more appropriate.

Ans 21:

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

Ans 22:

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

Ans 23:

Class : Class 8
YUP ANSWER IS PREOCCUPIED

Ans 24:

Class : Class 8
It is preoccupied.. Coz being active doesn't always mean being busy..

Ans 25:

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

Ans 26:

Class : Class 10
preoccupied

Ans 27:

Class : Class 10
Yeah

Ans 28:

Class : Class 9
Preoccupied

Ans 29:

Class : Class 8
preoccupied is quite similar to busyso i think the answer is marked wrong

Ans 30:

Class : Class 8
Being active can also mean to be energetic or full of stamina. Not only busy

Ans 31:

Class : Class 7
Ananyag is correct

Ans 32:

Class : Class 10
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 33:

Class : Class 9
I also think that preoccupied is the correct answer.

Ans 34:

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 35:

Class : Class 7
EVEN IN GOOGLE DICTIONARY ITS SAYING PREOCCUPIED

Ans 36:

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

Ans 37:

Class : Class 7

Ans 38:

Class : Class 10

Ans 39:

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 40:

Class : Class 9
Checked on google, preoccupy is correct

Ans 41:

Class : Class 7
Preoccupied is more suitable

Ans 42:

Class : Class 9
Yes, it must be C) Preoccupied... because that's synonymous to busy more than active

Ans 43:

Class : Class 10

Ans 44:

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 45:

Class : Class 7

Ans 46:

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