    Q: Is the answer 'wearing' or 'dressed'? 'dressed in red' is correct. You can not say 'wearing in red', but 'wearing red' would be correct.
    'The girl over there dressed in red is my sister.' sounds better.

    2. The boys_______on the bench took pride_______their families.
    A.seated;in  B.sitting;of  C.seating;in  D.set;with

    Q: Which is correct, 'seated' or 'seating'? seated
