    Re: Question about exercise directions (2)

    This is a very strange exercise.

    #1 is asking about the function of a word.
    #2 is asking about the definition of a word.
    #3 appears to be a comprehension question about a reading passage.

    Are you sure you want to cover such a wide range in one exercise?

    Hi 5jj,
    Thank you so much for your answer.
    That's what I thought; the exercise was covering a wide range in one. Then, could you tell me which directions are the most appropriate ones for each one please?
