    Celta Pre interview task

    Can anyone help with answering these questions?
    I have answered qustion 2,3, and 5. Can anyone check whether these answers are correct and please help with answering question 1 and 4?



    2.1 In English, there are many words that are pronounced in the same way, but the spelling is different, for example, ‘passed’ and ‘past’. These kinds of words are called homophones. Sometimes in written English, native speakers make a mistake by using a homophone incorrectly. For example: I past all of my exams.

    Correct the homophone mistakes in the following sentences:


    1. He kept a complete supply of chocolate hidden in the draws of his desk.
    2. The fence was only supported by two polls at either end of the field.
    polls-poles
    3. As a child I was never aloud to watch television more than two hours a day.
    aloud-allow
    4. At the border the guard waived us through.
    5. I was delighted to discover that I had been excepted to read history at Oxford.
    expected-accepted
