'untimely' means happening or done at an unsuitable time. I bet those who had the first telephones installed didn't consider the timing of this miracle of communication as 'untimely'!

What do/did you think 'untimely' means?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thank you Mr Clive for the answer.
I thought untimely means too fast. In this context, the technology of the cell phone growing to fast.
There is a slight problem with question 2:
My parents will be going to the Japan to attend my sister’s graduation in March.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
What about if we change Japan to United States. Is it still the same?

Thanks in advance.
Mr Clive,

For this sentence, i have some question,

7. Much of the machinery on these farms are / has / is / were unusable.

Why did you choose is instead of are? Is it because of the word much at the beginning of the sentence?

9. The computer together with all the important documents for the presentation was / were / is /are destroyed in the heavy flood.

For this question also, i think 'the computer with all the important documents' are plural.
The US, the UK, the Netherlands, the Maldives, the Falkland Islands, and probably many more countries or protectorates all require the article "the". I think that the vast majority of countries, however, do not. Japan is one.
