    Re: multiple choice about the words "never" and "the reason"

    Hello Marian

    I'll give you some clues for question 1; then you try to guess the answer.

    Question 1
    Clue 1: the verb must be inverted after "never".
    Clue 2: is the idiomatic phrase "to have in need of" or "to be in need of"?

    All the best,

    MrP
