Because I think there are more keys to the sentences. I'll explain my reasons respectively:
Present at the Christmas party were the two princesses and their _______ husbands and the Duke of Edinburgh.
a. respectable b. respective c. respected
The key is 'b'. No problem. Can I choose 'a' and 'c'? And could you please explain the difference between 'a' and 'c'?
The key means 'each stood beside her husband'. If I want to say 'each stood beside their husband who was respected' then 'a' and 'c' are possible. Is that right?
That's a nice coat, and the color ________ you well.
a. suits b. matches
The key is 'a'. No problem. I think 'b' is also correct if I want to say 'the color suits the color of your skin'. Is that right?
__________ he needed money for a new car, he decided not to borrow it from the bank.
a. Much as b. Much though
The key is 'a'. But I think 'b' is definitely correct. My grammar book said in this pattern both 'as' and 'though' are correct. So either my grammar book is wrong or the choices here are wrong. Is that right?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
