1. Read the following and find a right sentence.( )

A few months after I purchased a new car, I noticed that I had to exert more and more pressure on the gas pedal to get up to speed. I explained the problem to the service manager when I took the car in for its first maintenance check. Picking up the car later that day, I asked if they had found the source of the trouble. "We sure did," he said, grinning as he handed me my copy of the work order. On it, the mechanic had noted, "uncurled floor mat from under accelerator pedal."

① Curled mat caused the problem. ② The car owner scolded the mechanic. ③ He bought a new car a few months ago. ④ He took the new car to a garage to find the problem. ⑤ The mechanic could not find the problem of the new car.

2. Find the main idea

The temperature is chilly 32 degrees, the wind is blowing, and a light snow is falling. Nevertheless, Lee is walking to school dressed in a lightweight summer jacket, a pair of jeans, and a pair of canvas tennis shoes. He is wearing no hat and no gloves. Why is he dressed as if it were late summer and not early winter? It's because that's the way his friends are dressing. The need for peer approval is strong in teenagers. No one wants to look different, even if it means almost freezing.

① Looking unique is important to the youths. ② Sporty look is in fashion among teenagers. ③ The youth values the unique personality.

④ Being approved by friends is important to the teenagers. ⑤ The youngsters are likely to keep up with fashion trends.

3. StartFragment> Find the most poper title?

Every television show has a limited lifespan. In the beginning of its run, a good show may be overlooked by the public, but soon the audience grows. For a while, the show enjoys a period of remarkable energy and popularity. Soon, however, the show starts repeating itself and begins to seem stale. After that point, nothing can save it. The audience becomes bored and stops watching, and inevitably, the show that had once been so popular is sent to the TV trash heap.

StartFragment> ① Purpose of TV shows ② Popularity of TV shows ③ Limited lives of TV shows ④ Development of TV shows ⑤ Results of watching TV shows

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Are these not titles for your short pieces rather than questions? Choose the one that catches the attention most or contains the basic thesis of the piece..
Sorry, I tried to change the subject but couldn't. I mean I couldn't edit
Hi,

Let's first just discuss #1.

1. Read the following and find a right sentence to describe the situation.( ) Do you intend there to be only one possible right answer? You have two, in this first example.

A few months after I purchased a new car, I noticed that I had to exert more and more pressure on the gas pedal to get up to speed. I explained the problem to the service manager when I took the car in for its first maintenance check. Picking up the car later that day, I asked if they had found the source of the trouble. "We sure did," he said, grinning as he handed me my copy of the work order. On it, the mechanic had noted, "uncurled floor mat from under accelerator pedal."

① Curled mat caused the problem. ② The car owner scolded the mechanic. ③ He bought a new car a few months ago. ④ He took the new car to a garage to find the problem. ⑤ The mechanic could not find the problem of the new car. Since you say 'I' in the paragraph, perhaps you should say 'you' in the answers? Or just avoid this concern by changing the whole thing into the third person.

Best wishes, Clive

in the question 1, the right answers are 1 and 4, right? Do you think 3 also can be the right answer?

Thank you! We misunderstood the sentence "uncurled floor mat from under accelerator pedal." Thought ; There was an uncurled floor mat under the pedal. We thought the translation was strange, but it was written in the text. So, did not question it anymore. Thank you! saved us!(maybe, wrong expression?)
