Hi, everybody!
I have some questions about “functions of communication”. Can anyone help me out?
1. – “I like your new hat”
A. Do I B. So do I C. I don’t either D. I like not
I know that the answer is “ B. So do I”. How about “C. I don’t either.” If I replace “C” with “I don’t”, then is it correct?
2. _____________ I carry that bag for you” – Oh, thank you
A. Do B. Shall C. Will D. Would
I opt C. Why not “B”?
3. – “It’s heavy. ________________ I carry it for you?”
A. Should B. Might C. Would D. Will
I opt D. Is this right?
4. “___________ I ask you a question?
A. Will B. Shall C. May D. Do
Is “C. May” the best choice?
Many thanks in advance.

I know that the answer is “ B. So do I”. How about “C. I don’t either.” If I replace “C” with “I don’t”, then is it correct?
Only B is correct. Yes, "I don't" would be a correct answer.

2. _____________ I carry that bag for you” – Oh, thank you
A. Do B. Shall C. Will D. Would
I opt C. Why not “B”?
B is correct.

3. – “It’s heavy. ________________ I carry it for you?”
A. Should B. Might C. Would D. Will
I opt D. Is this right?
It's as good as any of the choices, though "May", "Can" or "Shall" are better. A. is possible.

4. “___________ I ask you a question?
A. Will B. Shall C. May D. Do
Is “C. May” the best choice?
Yes. But the others could be right in other contexts.
Many thanks in advance.
This is a poor test.
