    First, may I ask from where did these sentences originate? I ask because I don't like the construction of #'s 2, 3 & 4. See below.

    1-I'm not sure ,but I .....travel to Seoul tomorrow
    a) will b)may c)must d) have to OK.

    2- She has much money, and I ......do I don't like the use of "much". I would prefer "a lot of". With regard to the choices, "too" or "also" would be OK but not in the position suggested. I would prefer "...and I do too/also".
    a)too
    b)either c)also d)neither

    3- We have a great deal of ....... Here I would prefer to use "a great deal of" with non-count/abstract nouns. None of the possible choices fit that criteria.
    a) books b) children c) letters d) bread

    4- When he arrived,the train already left, he....... come early. Depends on context. If referring to his arrival in the future, "has to come early (OR 'earlier'). If referring to a previous arrival "had to arrive early (OR 'earlier')".
    a) must b) have to c) has to d)had to
    Thank you in advance
    b.

    I think you mean #3, but I agree. "A great deal of bread" sounds OK to me too.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Actually, I considered that possibility for some time before I posted my response and I would agree that it works, but my preference when it comes to "bread" would be "a lot of" (and, of course, pumpernickel ).

    There is no need to use titles such as Mr, Mrs etc on the forum. Just use our usernames. One of the reasons for this is that you have no idea whether we are male or female. Of the three titles you used above, one is the wrong sex.
