    You are correct.

    Please study my corrections to your English.

    Note that you can add to or alter an earlier post by using the Edit Post button.

    Tip for a better title: John is very fit.

    Re: what is the best option

    Are you familiar with the rules of this site about homework? If so, and and if not homework, based upon your multiple posts it would seem that you are posting an entire quiz one by one. Perhaps you could, in the future, post your selections/answers in a single post.

    I agree. Normally we ask people to post separate questions in separate threads. However, in this case, when when the 'Ask a Teacher' forum is getting clogged up with this type of question (the answers to which don't actually help anybody improve their English), then I am happy to bend the rules. If they are all together in one thread, then we can ignore them all at once rather than ignoring them one at a time. Efficiency!
