    In each case:
    a) underline the mistake

    Are you really asking us to complete your CELTA pre-interview tasks for you? Don't you think it's important for you to do this yourself, find out what you know and also show them that you can use grammar resources yourself?

    This is simply cheating- would you be satisfied if your learners did their assignments this way?
