    Re: multiple choice test

    Even that, you have copied it wrongly.
    It is Dover.

    Re: multiple choice test

    Not, it is not. It was in my English exam at University and I am not sure about the answer.

    Re: multiple choice test

    We like you to have a try first. What answer did you put, and why? Then we'll comment on it. On second thoughts, I think you could make any of those answers work, but I'm not familiar with what's actually available for the Channel crossing.
    (I don't like 'realized' in that sentence).

    Re: multiple choice test

    I don't like "realized" either.

    Re: multiple choice test

    What word would you use in place of realized?

    IMO, only (d) works but the ferry crossing the English Channel is not exactly luxurious.

    Re: multiple choice test

    Well, "made" would be one. I am not sure I would that trip a voyage, but it is grammatical. The others work for me.

    Re: multiple choice test

    No. The channel could be traversed, but not a trip, a voyage or a cruise.
