Hi,
Welcome to the Forum.

This does not seem to be an easy test, so I assume you are studying at a non-elementary level. If that is so, can you at least try to offer some answers for us to review?

Best wishes, Clive
Hello, I'm studying English at university. In the first part we should write any appropriate word and it is very hard.
I will try to do it and send my opinion. What do you think about second part?I write my answers in brackets.

Something like this:

After finishing their academic years working an 8 or 9-month year, it can be depressing to realize that for the rest of their working lives they are allowed
to take only 4 weeks off a year. Many students are waiting at the chance to take 3 month off and that.

Faced last autumn with the recession and with its failure to acquire more flight slots out of Heathrow airport, the company had

to consider redundancies. Mr Braun invited employees to work up to six month unpaid leave and to participate in a job.

How to do this sentence:
Your father is not alive today and she is the main reason for his death.
IF

thank you![F]
Hi,
__ their academic years working an 8 or 9-month year, it can be depressing to realize that for the rest of their working lives they__

to take only 4 weeks off a year. Many__ at the chance to take 3 month off and that.

_ last autumn with the recession and with its failure to acquire more flight slots out of Heathrow airport, the company_

to consider redundancies. Mr Braun invited employees___________ up to six month unpaid leave and to participate in a job.

Something like this:

After finishing their academic years working an 8 or 9-month year, it can be depressing to realize that for the rest of their working lives they
are allowed will be able / will be allowed
to take only 4 weeks off a year. Many students are waiting are thrilled / are excited at the chance to take 3 months off and that. <<<< is there something missing here after the word 'that'?

Faced last autumn with the recession and with its failure to acquire more flight slots out of Heathrow airport, the company had

to consider redundancies. Mr Braun invited employees to work up to six month unpaid leave and to participate in a job share jobs. 'Participate' is not a correct word, here.

How to do this sentence:
Your father is not alive today and she is the main reason for his death.
IF your father were alive today, she would not be the main reason for his death.
