Student or Learner
A friend of mine asked me some questions; and I already answered her. But she told me that her teacher insisted on different answers that I would never consider.
Please help me to make out the problem.
1. Choose the correct word to fill in the gap below
She wrote a letter in answer ..... the advertisement she read last night.
A: to B: on C: in D: under
I am sure A is correct but her teacher confidently chose C
2. Choose the sentence which has closest in meaning to the following one:
Don't you think it's time we made our excuses and left?
A: Hadn't we better made our excuses and left?
B: Oughtn't we to make our excuses and left?
C: You don't think it's time we made our excuses and left, do you?
D: You think it's time we made our excuses and left, don't you?
I am confused between C and D but I'd choose D while her teacher said the answer was A. But I've never seen a verb in past tense follow "had better". It must be "had better make" in anyway in my opinion.
