    Question Which is correct?

    Which one is correct?
    1. Put the appropriate adjectives that describe the pictures best to complete the sentences. (There are pictures on the page in front of each picture.)
    2. Put the right by describing the pictures.
    Best regards!

    Re: Which is correct?

    Something like:
    Put in/write an adjective that best describes each picture.

    But:
    I'm not sure from your post whether you are saying their are both pictures and possible adjectives on the page, one adjective for each picture, and they have to place the adjective next to the picture, or the other way round.

    One adjective for one picture. They have to write adjectives in the gaps. At the end of each sentence, there is a picture of something.

    Something like:
    Fill in each gap with an adjective that best describes the picture."

    Is this what you mean?
    'This is a ............ man." (Picture of man smiling.)

    This might get responses of smiling, happy, jolly.

    Yes, that's exactly what I want. Thank you so much.
    One more thing please. This's been teasing my brain for ages.
    What's the difference between " Have a bath" and " Take a bath"?
    Best regards!

    Re: Which is correct?

    'take' has many meanings. One of these is 'to perform some action' as in
    John took a deep breath.
    The newly-elected President took the oath of office.

    With regard to 'have/take a bath', they are completely interchangeable. Possibly 'have a bath/have a shower' is more common.
    If I had to find some nuance of difference, then when you 'have a bath' it's just part of the everyday routine. If i 'take a bath', I am conveying the idea that it is for a special purpose. eg "You're covered with mud - you need to take a bath!"
    "I'm going to have a large scotch, then take a bath and just soak my wearing limbs for an hour."

    Very interesting and informative but to my knowledge, there's only a little difference of British English and American English. Where Brits use " Have expressions " USA's Amcs use " Take expressions" as in:
    British : American
    Have a bath : Take a bath
    Have a nap : Take a nap
    Have a rest : Take a rest
    Have a look at: Take a look at
    Have a break etc: Take a break etc

    Is it right?

    Re: Which is correct?

    I was thinking parochially!
    You are quite right - that is one of the big differences between Am. and Brit. Eng.
