    I read these questions in a book but I don't know the answers:
    1. We have a very ......... teacher who doesn't mind if we are a bit late.
    A. broad-minded B. open-minded C. easy-going D. absent-minded

    A. inheritance B. heritage C. possessions D. property
    The key in this book is: 1.B 2.C

    The answer to the first one should be C. Somebody who is easy-going is very tolerant and tends to be relatively lax and not very strict.

    The answer to the first one should be B. That is what museums do. It isn't possessions as such that they keep but things that remind us of our history.

    You are right. The book is wrong.

    Any more questions?

    :D
