There you go, fellas! You still have 15 minutes to answer all questions before I’m back with the answers. #EngQuiz

I will retweet some correct answers, but first please make sure your account is not set as private.

  1. (a) amazes. The trip was done the previous year, but the effect can still be felt. #EngQuiz
  2. (c) went. Since the trip was done in the past, the correct form is ‘went’. #EngQuiz
  3. (a) in. #EngQuiz
  4. (b) an hour and a half. The ‘h’ in hour is silent, while the ‘h’ in half is not. #EngQuiz
  5. (a) then. Please be careful of using ‘then’ and ‘than’, fellas. #EngQuiz
  6. (a) seeking. It was meant to be the synonym of ‘searching’. #EngQuiz
  7. (c) long. It’s not short because of the size and not tall either because the komodo’s not standing. #EngQuiz
  8. (b) quiet. Please be reminded the one synonymous with ‘silent’ is ‘quiet’, instead of ‘quite’. #EngQuiz
  9. (a) guests, synonymous with visitors, while quest means pursuit, and guess means suspect. #EngQuiz
  10. (a) a unique. Although the word ‘unique’ starts with vowel, it makes consonantal sound. It’s the same as ‘unicorn’ or ‘uniform’. #EngQuiz
