    Hi,

    Question 1
    A) U.K.
    B) UK
    C) the UK
    D) the U.K.

    I wonder which one above is correct? I choose A & D. Am I right? And Is there any nickname for Britain like the opposite number--Uncle Sam?

    Question 2
    a) U. S. A.
    b) U.S.
    c) US
    d) the U.S.
    e) the US
    f) (in)the states
    g) (in) the States
    I wonder which one or ones are correct? I choose a, b, d. g

    I look forward to your help. Thanks in advance.

    You need the definite article. Whether to include the full stops or not is now optional.

    the USA or the US or the U.S.A or the U.S.
