The government announced that it would ________ water from the krishna river.
a and d - both sounds good.can someone please clarify why release is the right word(if it is really) :)
***neither a teacher nor a native-speaker***
The floodgates of the X Dam ( on the Y River) are scheduled to be opened to release water.
This is a hard question that requires real-world context to know the right answer. Without knowing about the dam, etc., they could all be right except for B.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
