    Cool multiple choice

    hello everybody


    Now, when friends come to see us we..........................say a word.

    1. can (not)
    2. could (not)
    3. must (not)
    4. have/had to
    5 am/is/are/was/were (not) allowed to

    I have tried with each one but for me doesnt seem to have meaning.

    None of the answers makes a proper sentence. For example, does 1. mean "can not", or are you allowed to choose "can".
    It's a very strange question.

    Re: multiple choice

    There are a couple that make sentences which, while possible, are unlikely. For example: "Now, when friends come to see us we are not allowed to say a word."

    I agree with the others that there are some possibilities but I can't imagine what any of them is supposed to mean.

    Now, when friends come to see us we cannot say a word.
    Now, when friends come to see us we must say a word.
    Now, when friends come to see us, we must not say a word.
    Now, when friends come to see us we have to say a word.
    Now, when friends come to see we are not allowed to say a word.
