1. Fill in with the appropriate word in the gap
A) The English pub remains one of the country's greatest attributes, often the central point of a community and just __ offten visited by foreign tourists who usually fail totally to understand or appreciate it.
Is it a) such, b) very, c) more d) as? I know 'succ' isn't for sure. Could it be b)?

No afraid not, 'as' here. We are comparing the visits of the community to the visits of the foreign tourists. 'as' is used for comparisons.

B) To an Englishman, the pub is a place where people meet on equal terms, from (1) _ their walk of life, to relax, have a drink and (2)_ a conversation. Is it (1) a) wherever, b) whichever, c) whatever d) whenever. I would say whichever... (2) a) like, b) carry, c) participate, d) enjoy. My choice was d) enjoy.

1) is whatever (although I consider the use of 'from' before this space incorrect). Yes, enjoy is correct, well done.

C) Our research will __ the way to future discoveries. (From a text about fossils...)
a) generale, b) fashion, c) pave, b) ground. Pave? yes, pave. not easy as it is an idiom.

D) A few weeks ago I was __ my new sailing gear getting ready for my first long trip around the coast
a) going through, b) settling down, c) checking up, d)passing over. The more I stare, the more it confuses me, though b) is def. out for me.

you are right in that b is wrong. C would also be wrong - although 'checking' on its own would have been ok. d also completely wrong. The answer is a.

2. Do you haul, cart, hand or trail someone out of his sinking ship? um, I suppose haul, from the point of view of being rescued from outside the ship. Hard to say without context. Someone inside the ship might hand someone else out...

3. Fill in with one word that matches both sentences:
a) The doctor said I need to eat three __ meals a day until I am stronger.
b) Your ideas just don't __ woth mine, I don't agree.
I'd say... CLEAR. Is it?

No, afraid not. Probably the easiest way to solve this is to look for the idiom '3 X meals' and there is your answer. Clue: it's also a word for a shape.

a) In class, you must be careful how you __ your intelligence. There is a fine line between showing off and participating responsibly.
b) I kept my mobile phone in the same pocket as my keys and now the __ is all messed up, it's unusable.
I have no clue here, honestly.

try 'display'.

4. Fill in the gap.
As _ result, claims that eating a diet consisting entirely __ organically grown foods prevents or cures disease or provides other benefits to health _ become widely publicised and now form the basis of folklore.
I know the first two, of course..haha: a, of. The third.. I don't know. It's quite a complex sentence. Try thinking about 'these claims X become widely known'.

Are organically grown foods the best food choices? The advantages claimed _ such foods over conventionally grown and marketed food products are now called into _.
1) by

account - I can see why you thought this but it is usually called to account. I think they want 'question'.

5. His _ ( ordinary) talent was already clearly evident as a young man (2)__ (mercy) surviving a somewhat unconvential (3)_ (bring).

1. unordinary, - no - what is the opposite of ordinary, something very very unusual? Not 'un' ordinary. 2. look for forms of mercy, 3 upbringing. yes
