Hi there. There is a quiz from book "Grammar and vocabulary for First Certificate", preparing for the ESOL First Certificate in English (FCE) (Cambridge University) . It's extracted from one module, devoted to Link words : purpose and reason. It implies upper-intermediate level. I hope it would be useful.

Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
I agree. That is the only one I got wrong and i would have selected it as it made sense except that the word to was already there.
number 5 is flawed
I am certain that the alternative option seems more probable in the case number 10.

I am very curious about the example number 2. Once again I would have chosen 'because'.

The fifth example - 'due to to' doesn't seem natural, unless you read it slow.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I appreciate the test you laid out as I oddly enough finding fun ?
I only chose this word which I don't know what it is, because if I would've chosen due to that would've been "to to" the sentence and that makes no sense although I do this would've been the correct wording you should really correct this typo in the sentence thank you very much

Well spotted, that is clearly a typo. There are three mistakes in the test.
