    Tdol provided an answer to the question about using he or she rather than it for animals. Then he asked what the text was about.

    Re: Reading comprehension

    I think only one question remains unanswered. I do know that sometimes the answer to a question is only one word. In any case, I haven't detected any kind of pattern.
    Not a professional teacher

    Re: Reading comprehension

    Okay, Jessicak, Tdol answered your first question, and I think you said you had an answer to the second. That leaves your third question, which I'm not sure I understand. Please tell us more about this reading comprehension test and clarify the third question if you can.

    And are you sure your native language is English? We ask for that information because it may help us to give better answers to your questions.

    Not in my opinion. The tenses and verb forms used in the answer should follow the meaning of the reply.
