1-Which verb would you fill in the blank? rent or let?why?
We've................our house to some Americans for the summer.
which adjective for the blank? keen or wishful? why?
2-I can't drive yet,but I'm...................to learn when I'm 18.
Thanks in advance.
What do you think are the right answers to the questions?
Note: In sentence 1, to rent seems better though both verbs can be used to describe the same meaning. There's a little difference between them. Let in this meaning is mostly used in American English whereas rent is common in British English.

Hope this helps!
These two questions are taken from a test.The answer key says 'let' for the first one and 'wishful' for the second one,but I can't find any explanation for why.
