    Gapped sentences again

    There is one more set of gappend sentences to be completed with just one and the same word.

    1) The area is home to scores of rare species and our _____________________ reserve makes it a point to preserve the status quo as long as possible.

    2) Liam's a chatterbox. If you tell him about our surprise party, he'll give the _________________ away.

    3) It was wonderful to see Mike being so happy when he got a computer ___________________ as a present.

    Help me, please! Thanks in advance!

    Do you have any thoughts? The third sentence is most likely to give it away.

    Well, in the third one it seems we need to use something like a computer mouse or a computer screen or something. Definately some part of a computer. Don't you think?

    How about something very common and fun? The second is tough because it is an idiom.
