    Some questions needed resolved

    1) If I rename this topic as" a Triple question", does it mean exactly the same as" Three questions"?

    2) This is a sentence from (or in ????) one of my tests:
    Our classes___for 2 hours from Monday through Saturday
    a) take place
    b)happen
    c) learn
    d) occur
    I think there are two meanings for classes, so a and c can both be chosen, what do you think?

    3) As we know "silent" is a synonym of "quiet", so how about this sentence:
    It's too noisy here. I'd prefer a___place
    a) quieter
    b) more silent
    Can I odd one out?

    4)Another sentence took out from my workbook:
    When the ice retreated at the end of the Ice Age 20000 to 15000 years ago, Lascar suffered___ most violent eruption
    a) the
    b) a
    Can you tell me what is the right choice and please explain it thoroughly


    That's all about it. Thanks in advance for your help

    2) This is a sentence from (or in ????) one of my tests: both can be used.
    Our classes___for 2 hours from Monday through Saturday
    a) take place
    b)happen
    c) learn
    d) occur
    I think there are two meanings for classes, so a and c can both be chosen, what do you think? Yes, your logic is fine.

    3) As we know "silent" is a synonym of "quiet", so how about this sentence:
    It's too noisy here. I'd prefer a___place "silence" is total absence of noise; "quiet" is low level of noise. So #a is correct.
    a) quieter
    b) more silent
    Can I odd one out? ???

    4)Another sentence took out taken from my workbook:
    When the ice retreated at the end of the Ice Age 20000 to 15000 years ago, Lascar suffered___ most violent eruption
    a) the
    b) a
    Can you tell me what is the right choice and please explain it thoroughly "most" requires "the".

    Re: Some questions needed resolved

    Thanks Anglinka, but still, there are some problems
    question 2, my answer "a" was turned down by the teacher and I got some minus marks for it.
    question 3, as seen in Oxford dictionary, I found out that they are two synonyms, so why there are differences of meanings here?
    Question 5, they choose a instead of the, I have seen some sentences like:
    That's a most beautiful picture... But cannot remember why.
