    29- Used, useful, usefully, usefulness

    a) Kris bought a usefulness Land Rover to drive around the country.
    No, you need a term for a second-hand car.

    b) I found a useful book in the attic about repairing electrical appliance.
    Yes

    c) The blank paper wasted in wrapping boxes can more usefully be a notebook.

    Yes.

    d) Managing board doubts the used of importing raw materials.
    No, you need a noun after "the".

    30- Fail, fail, failure Are you sure these are your choices?

    a) Ed passed three exams, and fails only one.
    No, you need the past tense.

    b) His had never had a fail before.

    No. But the sentence is not grammatical anyway.

    c) His failure was so shocking to him that it took three months for him to recover.
    Yes

    31- Vary, various, variety, variation

    a) Boiling point of a liquid may vary due to variation in air pressure.

    Good

    b) For variety reasons, I doubt whether they are telling us the whole truth.
    No. You could say "For a variety of reasons", but 'a' isn't there.

    c) I don't like my job, because it lacks various.

    No, you need a noun here.

    32- Pity, pity, pitiable. Again, are these really your choices?

    a) It is a pity that a well-educated person behaves so cheaply.
    Yes.

    b) The young children who lost all their family members in war are to be pitiable.
    Yes.

    c) A young reporter videotaped pity scenes of a dying soldier.
    No, you need an adjective.

    R.
