    Besides, give me your explanations of the choices. Thank you.

Is this another exercise that you have been asked to undertake? Why don’t you give us your suggestions, otherwise there is no point, as you will learn so much less?
I’ll tell you something to get you started though - number 1 needs the verb changed it is grammatically incorrect. And the only possible correct answer to number 6 indicates a really poor vocabulary choice! It wouldn’t be an appropriate word to use in that context.

I’ve corrected the question 6. I still can’t get what you suggest for number 1. My choices are B, C, C, A, A, A. Is WALKED also correct for number 6? In fact, I think cross, past or pass don’t need the preposition TO.

You mean you are making up the choices? I thought this was a set exercise.

The word ‘is’ needs to change or even when the correct answer is selected, the question won’t be grammatically correct.

The preposition ‘to’ is definitely required in this sentence. ‘walked’ would be acceptable, but it isn’t one of the choices.

  1. What is a…like that cost?
    A. Clothing
    B. Clothes
    C. Garment
    D. Clothe

You chose B. Unsurprisingly, you got this one wrong. This might be because the grammar is incorrect. The correct answer is © - this is the only one that as a single item of clothing. Use of the indefinite article indicates that the answer is singular.
However,
“What is a garment like that cost?” is incorrect. The sentence should read:
“What does a garment like that cost?”
Please don’t argue that ‘is’ must be correct because your teacher said so, or because that is what is in the textbook, as I won’t bother answering any of your questions again if you do.

  1. You have to drive very carefully if a road is full of…
    A. Angles
    B. Bends <—
    C. Corners
    D. Winding

We call the curves in a road ‘bends’. They are only corners where there are intersections.

  1. I must congratulate you. You’ve…a very good job.
    A. Done <—
    B. Made
    C. Finished
    D. Worked

Using ‘finished’ indicates that the congratulations are because it is over, rather than because the job has been done well.

  1. Make sure you end each sentence with a…
    A. Dot
    B. Point
    C. Comma
    D. Full stop <-----

Although a full stop is made by drawing a dot on the page, it has a special significance. Besides, question marks and exclamation marks are also specialist forms of a full stop - and they are more than just dots.

  1. This milk has… Don’t drink it.
    A. Good sour
    B. Soured <----
    C. Bad
    D. Gone badly

“good sour” just doesn’t make sense. Did you read it quickly and think it said ‘gone sour’? That would be acceptable but it isn’t there.

  1. The blind man…carefully to the other side of the road.
    A. Crossed <—
    B. Passed
    C. Past
    D. Walk
    Now that you have changed the word ‘crossed’, that is correct. But was the word changed in the original exercise?

You mean cross needs a preposition TO? And that a full stop can be a dot, question mark, exclamation mark alternatively? And why is gone soured
not correct?

the preposition 'to is needed to accompany the phrase “the other side”.
“Crossed the road…” doesn’t need a preposition.
“Crossed to the other side…” does.

In normal usage we distinguish the full stop, the question mark and the exclamation mark as being different marks. However they all perform the same function - they end a sentence. The exclamation mark and the question mark are special forms of the standard full stop though we very rarely - if ever - think of them ion those terms.
In geometry, we distinguish between a square and a rectangle - but in fact a square is just a rectangle with special properties.

‘Gone soured’ is not correct for two reasons:

  1. It would have to be ‘gone sour’, not ‘gone soured’.
  2. The choice isn’t given among the answers.

I still don’t understand why not dot but full stop.

Bceause it isn’t any old dot. It’s a full stop.

What is an old dot? You meant just a full stop can end a sentence?

Ok. Now, the best thing you can do for me is giving its definition. I mean what a full stop is.

In normal usage we distinguish the full stop, the question mark and the exclamation mark as being different marks. However they all perform the same function - they end a sentence.

AS YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN TOLD!

But dot can’t end a sentence even though it has the same shape as the full stop?

Hi BS,

A full stop is: A period indicating the end of a sentence. >> “grammatical term”
A dot is: A tiny round mark made by or as if by a pointed instrument; a spot. >> not necessarily a full stop, such as used in ‘dpi’ (dots per inch).

Thank you for the assurance. I also read them by googling.

Why the heck did you then ask for explanation?

I agree with Foah, BS. I’d suggest you first try and try your best on your own, and then give out your ‘impossibles’ in a little ‘grudging’ manner: Small is beautiful.

I am shyju from india , i would like to learn more and share everything wit my friends…

Because I realised that what he said was the same as what I had found before but the phrase GRAMMATICAL TERM. Also, I wonder grammatical term or grammar term. At last, dot can’t be used as a mark to end a sentence right?

i wish to learn more from you .

I liked how did Blow snow’doting dot sign on the dotted line to not stop on the full stop.

By the way Foah ,why are you asking everyone to remind you of some trivialities that even Blew Snow can mock at?
