**  You can choose more than one correct answer. In some cases, there might be two or three correct answers. **

Answer to Q1:   a) milk or butter         b) milk, butter           c) milk  / butter      d) milk  butter

Click below to reveal the answers:


Q1 = You could choose b, c or d. All three were correct. Answer a was wrong. The word “or” was already given in the question and shouldn’t be used again.

Tips: When you have two words as an answer for one question, it is best to just leave a space between the words. For example, “milk   butter”. You can separate the words if you want using punctuation but it isn’t necessary.,

Q2 = You could choose b. The other answers were wrong.  The sentence must be grammatically correct to be marked right. So, you needed to write “a ticket” as your answer.

Q3 = You could choose c or d. Both of them are right. The answers a and b are wrong. The word “at” was given in the sentence so you should not repeat it.

Tips: When you write the time, there is no set rule for this. You could write 9.30pm or 9:30pm. As long as the person marking understands, it will be marked right. 




  1. Dear Elizabeth,
    should I include a space between the time and the AM/PM? Which one would you prefer, 9:00 PM or 9:00PM? Grammarly says that the former is correct.

    • You do not need to think about that for listening answers. Both options would be acceptable. Please be careful using that program.


    Good day Liz,
    I took my test recently and one of the question was to fill in a birthdate. The instruction was to fill with not more than two word with or number. In the script, the date was pronounced as twenty second , seventh, nineteen eighty five. How do we fill this? I wrote : 22nd-7-1985.

    Thanks for your replay, I choose the answer for the Q:1 a because it was written in the topic or same as in the answer a and I didn’ think that will be a repetition. Thank you for clarifying that.
