Hi, I have some questions about the above test:
These are my questions:
1. To me the above test is difficult to recognize whether the word "paper" refers to number 1 or 7 of Oxford (1 or 7, 8, 9 of Longman). Is there any clue? I mean the word "paper" in my test can be countable and uncountable. Isn't it?
2. Can option "d" be correct as well?
