Hi!
I read the following question in a TOEIC:

"6. I'll go to the convention center ______ I've checked into the hotel.

A. since
B. as soon as
C. though
D. as

(Answer: B)"

Do you agree with the above that B is the ONLY correct answer? What about A? What about D?
Thanks in advance.

From a purely grammar perspective, all of these choices fit.

Tests like this require you to decide what is 'most likely', ie what fits in 'the most likely' context. If you look at it that way, I'm sure that B is the expected answer.

Hi. Welcome to English Forums.

I agree on B. Since is often used witht he meaning "from point in the past","because". As doesn't carry out the meaning of "going to the centre after having checked into the hotel".
Check a good dictionary not to confuse them. It's the only way to get something remembered. Here we are:

It's probably possible to imagine contexts where some of the other answers could be considered correct, however given this question without any additional context then B is the answer I would select. I'm not familiar with the TOEIC but if it's like other multiple choice tests then the instruction, in case of ambiguity, is to pick the most correct answer.
