Class : Class 8
YES, IT COULD BE EITHER B OR D.BECAUSE BOTH ANSWERS SUIT WELL.

Ans 2:

Class : Class 8
Even I believe that the right option is 'a' because a conversation between a brother and sister shouldn't be formal. I think we all talk to our siblings in a casual way, don't we?

Ans 3:

Class : Class 9
It is supposed to be Option D, well according to me

Ans 4:

Class : Class 7
i feel it isn't option d because the conversation is between a brother and sister. So mostly a conversation between siblings is usually casual..

Ans 5:

Class : Class 7
Actually I think the reasonable answer is D. 'A' isn't an inch formal and isn't it awkward to use a word more than once in a sentence.

Ans 6:

Class : Class 9
I think it is option D

Ans 7:

Class : Class 8
It is Option D. We have been asked to give the most appropriate ans and the first option doesn't suit it. D is the best one

Ans 8:

Class : Class 7

Ans 9:

Class : Class 6
why is it not option d

Ans 10:

Class : Class 7
It could be either B or D.

Ans 11:

Class : Class 7
I think it should be option D as I don't think anyone talks to their siblings in such a brash and millennial manner. But I have posted this as I don't talk to any of my siblings in such a tone.

Ans 12:

Class : Class 8
D

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
There are two species of elephant seals, the northern and southern. Northern elephant seals can be found in California and Baja California, though they prefer to frequent offshore islands rather than the North American mainland.
Southern elephant seals live in sub- Antarctic and Antarctic waters that feature brutally cold conditions but are rich in the fish, squid, and other marine foods these seals enjoy. Southern elephant seals breed on land but spend their winters in the chilly Antarctic waters near the Antarctic pack ice. Do you know southern seals can dive over 4,921 feet (1,500 metres) deep and can remain submerged for up to two hours?
Southern elephant seals are the largest of all seals. Males can be over 20 feet (6 metres) long and weigh up to 8,800 pounds (4,000 kilograms). But these massive mammals with flippers aren’t called elephant seals because of their size. They take their name from their trunk like inflatable snouts.
The northern elephant seals live up to nine years whereas the southern ones can live up to 22 years. When breeding season arrives, male elephant seals define and defend territories. They collect a harem of 40 to 50 females, which are much smaller than their enormous mates. Males battle each other for dominance. Some encounters end with roaring and aggressive posturing, but many others turn into violent and bloody battles.
Sea elephants, as these seals are sometimes called, give birth in late winter to a single pup and nurse it for approximately a month. While suckling their young, females do not eat—both mother and child live off the energy stored in ample reserves of her fat. Females give birth to a single pup each year after a 11-month pregnancy.
Elephant seals migrate in search of food, spending months at sea and often diving deep to forage. They return to their rookeries in winter to breed and give birth. Though both male and female elephant seals spend time at sea, their migration routes and feeding habits differ: Males follow a more consistent route while females vary their routes in pursuit of moving prey.
Elephant seals were aggressively hunted for their oil, and their numbers were once reduced to the brink of extinction. Fortunately, populations have rebounded under legal protections.
The number of elephant seals in the world __________.

Ahas reduced drastically
Bhas remained the same
Chas become better
Dhas shrunk to extinction

Isn't A also correct?

Ans 2:

Class : Class 8
The given answer is utterly unexplainable. Obviously, option A fits in their according to my impeccable judgement. "If you find a mobile phone in the street what would you do?"

Ans 3:

Class : Class 7
Sorry, now I get in this both the answers are halfway agreeable. Even though find changes into its past tense - found, then do would never change because in this sentence you are using the mobile phone after you find it on the street, may it be at any point of time.These are rare cases and always should be cautious.

Ans 4:

Class : Class 10

Ans 5:

Class : Class 10
I would go with option AIt is so dumb if u keep D

Ans 6:

Class : Class 7
It should be option A according to me

Ans 7:

Class : Class 4

Ans 8:

Class : Class 6
kindly explain

Ans 9:

Class : Class 8
D

Ans 10:

Class : Class 7
Okay, so according to me the answer is 'A' . In this sentence there are two verbs -find and do. If the tense of one changes, say found changes to found, then do would surely become have done. Am I correct?

Ans 11:

Class : Class 10

Ans 12:

Class : Class 7
"If you find a mobile phone in the street, what would you do with it?"is the right answer.

Ans 13:

Class : Class 8
D should be the answer as the tense matters. since it says ' what would you do with it', 'would' is past tense so 'found ' is the answer.

Read the passages given below carefully and then answer the questions that follow :

Sona's Ride

Sona moved into the cool, blue moving water. She pushed the black inner tube towards her. She was very worried as she had never floated on the river before. 'Let me hold your hand, while you climb on,' said her father. Sona was trying very hard to hide her nervousness. 'It is a bright and beautiful day. There is not a cloud in sight. Great day to be on the river isn't it?' said she.

Sona looked out across the water where people were drifting on the tubes effortlessly. She could even see some of them talking and chatting while sailing away. None of them looked frightened. 'We'll stay together,' said her father, 'I'll hold on to your rope.'

'Will we go very fast?' Sona asked. 'No,' said her father, 'It will move slowly for a while, and then it will move quickly towards the river's curve. You don't have to worry, you will be fine.' Sona looked at her tube. It bobbed up and down, and she saw a girl of her own age having fun. Suddenly, Sona's worries disappeared. 'Keep it steady so that it will not move, father. I am ready to climb on it' said Sona.

The word 'drifting' means

A. Gently moving around
