    (1) It is so hot that you could fry an egg on the sidewalk.

    (2) It is too cold to go to the beach today.

    (3) You are a very good student.

    Welcome to the forum, sanaz. :hi;. We like to help when we can, but that is rather too broad a question to answer in one thread, as you will see if you look here:

    so adverb (VERY) - definition in British English Dictionary & Thesaurus - Cambridge Dictionary Online
    too adverb (MORE) - definition in British English Dictionary & Thesaurus - Cambridge Dictionary Online
    very adverb - definition in British English Dictionary & Thesaurus - Cambridge Dictionary Online

    Do you have examples of specific sentences in which you are not sure which of these words is appropriate? If so, post them here, and we'll see what we can do.

    Well, theParser gave you examples of the words in use, and I gave you links to dictionary definitions, which also had examples of the words in use. Unless you provide specific examples of sentences in which you don't know which one to use, there is not much more we can do.

    TheParser's examples should help you get those.

    Q3 - The bus was ____ crowded..... too/very
    Either could be used here.
    True, but with no more context than you have, 'very' is more likely; we'd need a reason for it to be too crowded.

    Q5 - It was ____ good that I rushed out and bought it.
    Q8 - He was ___rude that I lost my temper.
    Q9 - Was it ____ expensive to buy?
    Q10 - It cost ___ much that I didn't buy it.
    TheParser's examples should help you get those.
    Try those, and then we'll look at the others.

    That is a very interesting quiz. I think that the teachers would appreciate it if you tried to answer the questions first. Then they would be very happy to check your answers.

    I think that No. 1 is "so." Now would you like to try the others? Good luck!
