1) The committee changed its recommendations because__ the privous ones were too difficult for most people to follow
a) that felt that
b) it felt that
--> The answer is a but I don't understand why it's not the other

2) Attending every class is important__ in college
a) for the sucess
b) for success
The answer is b but I don't know why it's not a

3" I'm tired of taking the bus to work every day"
"I wish I had a car so that I___ give you a ride"
a) can
b) could
---> The answer is b but I don't understand why it's not a

4) She worked _______ day and read books at night
a) during the
b) at
--> The answer is a, I don't understand why it's not b since I think this sentence is a parallel sentence, so if we use a we must use during the night at the following clause

1) The committee changed its recommendations because__ the privous ones were too difficult for most people to follow
a) that felt that -
are you sure this isn't "they felt that"?
b) it felt that
--> The answer is a but I don't understand why it's not the other

If the two possible answers are now:
a: they felt that
b it felt that
Which do you think is correct and why?


2) Attending every class is important__ in college
a) for the sucess
b) for success
The answer is b but I don't know why it's not a

Why do we use the definite article?

3" I'm tired of taking the bus to work every day"
"I wish I had a car so that I___ give you a ride"
a) can
b) could
---> The answer is b but I don't understand why it's not a

]So, if I asked, "Can you give me a lift to work tomorrow?" you would say "no, I don't have a car. If I had a car, then I(what)?"

4) She worked _______ day and read books at night
a) during the
b) at
--> The answer is a, I don't understand why it's not b since I think this sentence is a parallel sentence, so if we use 'a' we must use 'during the night' as the following clause.

Can you give me another sentence using 'at day' in it?

Thanks,
I'm with you. My answer book must have been wrong. But in sentence 4, I think b is the correct answer while the book persist in a
