I have five questions to ask:
he promised that he would _____ at least two hours on his English study every day.
a. put away b. put in
The key is "b". But in my dictionary it reads: put away=put aside, put in[to]: add.
According to this I think "a" is correct. Or does "b" mean "He would add two more hours on his English study"?
"Put in" = put in - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary
In this context, it means to spend time at something.
Michael ________ wild when he went shopping in town for the first time.
a. ran b. grew
The key is "a". In my dictionary it reads: run wild: to behave as somebody esp. children what to, grow wild: to be excited. So I think both are correct. Is that right?
"Ran wild" is the more likely term required - he was uncontrolled in what he did.
They were spoken of as war widows.
I have consulted my dictionary but can't find the expresson "spoken of as". Is it an idiomatic expression?
Wrong split of phrase:
[spoken of] [as war widows]
The water supply will give out at th end of this week.
Could you please kindly explain the meaning of "give out"? I can't find it in my dictionary.
Will run out - will cease to be - there will be no more water - there is not enough water to continue the supply.
He _____ my anger and held back what he had said.
a. sensed b. realized
The key is "a". I agree. Could you please kindly explain if "b" is possible?
It is possible.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
