A: This is used to agree.
B: This is used to suggest that an unnamed "he" is beautiful too. It's a possible answer.

2 ----Could you please look after my garden while I'm away?
---_____________.
A With pleasure. B It's my pleasure.

A: A normal response
B: It sounds like it's past. I would be/will be my pleasure would work, but not the present.

3 ---I don't think it will_____you much time to work out this problem.

A take B spend C cost D use
Only A is correct. If the book says B the book is incorrect.

My answers are 1 A 2 B 3 A. But the answers given in book are 1 B 2 A 3 B. I got really confused. Please help me teachers. Thank you!
The first one could have more than one correct answer.

1) This is VERY formal and old-fashioned structure. Shakespeare perhaps? More common would be, "The girl is very beautiful". In addition, the answers are VERY strange!!

A) So she is = "I see, I understand" OR sarcastically, "Who cares? That is unimportant"
B) So is he = "That boy is also pretty"
*Either your book is weird, or your teacher is mistaken. You can say that a native English speaker has no idea what this is supposed to mean!

2) A is correct - With pleasure. You could also say, "It would be my pleasure". After you have answered, THEN you could say, "It's my pleasure to look after your garden". But this would not be a correct response to "Could you look after....?"

3) A - "Take" is the best answer. "I don't think it will take you much time...". "Cost" is also acceptable, if the person is busy and you're discussing whether or not they have enough time.

"Spend you much time" is DEFINITELY the wrong answer!

Your book is a bit inaccurate.

Thank you very much! Teachers.

I want to make a aplogize for a mistake.

B is So is she. not So is he. Sorry.

In addition, the answers are VERY strange!! Not to me. Nor, apparently, to Barb.

You can say that one native English speaker has no idea what this is supposed to mean!

Even with the she/he confusion, either answer is possible.

So she is -- I agree.
So is she -- This other girl is also beautiful.

Thank you Barb_D fivejedjon teachers.
