You have to choose the correct option to fill the gap in a sentence. To do this well in an exam, follow our advice:

  • Read the whole sentence with all options before you choose.
  • When you choose an option, do you know why it is right? This can help you decide.
  • When you choose an option, do you know why the other options are wrong? This can help you decide.
  • Eliminate an option that you know is not correct.
  • If you’re not sure which option to choose, use your instinct. Which option sounds better?
  • If you don’t know the answer, guess. You may be right!
  • Check your answers carefully when you finish.
  • Options will often test you on similar or easily confused words, linking words, phrasal verbs, and collocations.

I don't like to watching "the Hunger Games" and I agree that we watch and read so much violence on TV and in newspapers. But I like to do exercise like this.

Hi teresina,
I'm not sure what you mean. There's only one interactive exercise on this page. It's under the main text. Can you see it?
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

Hello, JoEditor
karina and teresina were right. This exercise is a multiple choice type. So it should have several options, at most about three or four to choose, as shown in the above picture. :)
With best wishes

Hi sanpai28,
Sorry to karina and teresina. You were all right! We have just fixed this activity. Now it really is a multiple choice! Sorry for the confusion.
