Grammar Cloze Exercises

In this lesson, we will be working on grammar cloze exercises. We will be looking into several examples where you will be expected to fill in the blanks with the right words from the given choices. So, let’s start with some practice questions.

 

Practice Questions

 

Question 1:

Part (1) __________ the weasel family, sea otters are located (2) __________ the coast of the Pacific Ocean in North America. Sea otters often float (3) __________ the surface of water bodies. These aquatic animals crush oysters (4) __________ rocks until they crack wide open, allowing them to devour the delicious flesh inside.

  1. Fill in the blank for (1) __________

 

  1. of
  2. with
  3. to

 

Answer:

The correct answer to this question is option (a) - of. “Part of” is a collocation and these words usually come together. When you want to talk about certain species or things that are smaller parts of a bigger group, then you should use “part of”. We will not be using “part with” here as it means to give up possession or control of something that originally belonged to you. As such, “part with” doesn’t fit in the question stated above.

 

  1. Fill in the blank for (2) __________

 

  1. along
  2. through
  3. into

 

Answer:

The correct answer to this question is option (a) - along. We use the preposition “along” when we have a path, which is long and winding. For instance: along the riverbank, along the path, along the corridor etc.

 

  1. Fill in the blank for (3) __________

 

  1. along
  2. on
  3. into

 

Answer:

The correct answer to this question is option (b) - on. For anything that is on a surface, we always use the preposition “on”.

 

  1. Fill in the blank for (4) __________

 

  1. for 
  2. in
  3. against

 

Answer:

The correct answer to this question is option (c) - against. add definition of ‘against’? Use this preposition for when something comes into physical contact with another thing, to collide with or be supported by it.
