    You try first. I should warn you that some of them make very little sense.

    I think that is the case.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I was confused by bhai's comment. Can we answer the question or does this look like homework to you?

    Re: Multiple choice questions

    tranlam claims to be a teacher. Let's wait for confirmation of that.

    Maybe 'I've done 100 multiple [choice] questions' means he/she has set them for the students.

    OK. In the US, "done" would be likely to mean "answered", "finished", "completed".

    Re: Multiple choice questions

    I'm sorry for replying so slowly because I've been too busy for the last two weeks. Yes, this is a online test from a Vietnamese web. I copied and prepared for my students. The answers with red letters are my choices but I'm not sure. I need your help. Please help me.

    A. Hot though was the night air B. Hot as the night air was
    C. Though the night hot air was D. Hot although the night air was

    2. ... took his driving lessons because he was fined for not having a driving license.
    A. The young rich man B. The man rich young
    C. The young man D. Rich young the man
    Both A and C would be okay, though "the rich young man" sounds better. If you consider adjectives out of their most natural order incorrect, then only C is right. The sentence doesn't make much sense, though.

    3. We will plant trees and flowers along the ... or in the parks.
    A. side walk B. pavements C. sideways D. Both A and B are correct
    In the US, it would be "sidewalk." I don't know if other places say "pavements."

    4. The company made its ... by selling a popular compound of coffee.
    A. currency B. cost C. fortune C. value
    Yes, but coffee is not usually talked about as a "compound" - blend, yes.

    5. We went to three restaurants and we choose this the most ... because the food is delicious.
    A. taste B. tasteful C. tasty D. tasteless
    This doesn't make any sense.

    6. After ten years working as the best consultant for the company, he is promoted gets the highest ...
    A. position B. place C. work D. chair
    This doesn't make sense.

    I really appreciate your help. Thank you in advance.
    #5 might be fixed with "We went to three restaurants and decided this one has the tastiest food."
    #6 is not fixable. I don't know what it's supposed to say.
    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.
