# 2

2 - What is the ___ thing you have ever eaten?

* Thing!How I can eat!

The correct sentence is

The correct sentence is "what is the strangest...?"

Strange is an adjective, strangest is the superlative form.


My answers

1.Yes, few times every winter due to Electrical Power/Central Heating Supply "Schedule" during the communist rule in Bulgaria. They used to export Electrical Power and sometimes at low water reservoirs level, it wasn''t enough for the country itself. We called those "wooden vacations";

2. Sea cucumbers;

3. Sometimes yes. But that depends on my mood;

4. Trying to achieve a goal gives one a motivation to live and move forward. A new goal is always a kind of change of life;

5. No, never. Even though the police officers by low shall defend peoples interest, for me they are part of the goverment repressive machine. I am addicted to the Freedom, thus The Ministry of Internal Affairs is not my type of employer;

6. Az arrogant reporters, ready to breach peoples privacy for the sake of money;

7. Both useful and useless;

8. Because of the geographic position of my country, I think having an army is still a must;

9. Definitely no! That is the ugliest form of human exploitation! But having worked and lived in many countries I have seen children working, as the only way the family to earn sufficient money for living. That is already sad;

10. Probably the dreamed Electrical Powerplant, able to produce from one litre of water enough energy for a small village. Anyway, it won't be for sure a machine, that will make the people "for ever young", because then we must stop reproducing ourselves and forget the joy of having children.

i've got a question.

No.6 : I was choosing "How". when do we use "how do u think...?" ,is "what do u think..." a set phrase?

No.10 :is "what type of machine" true? I think machine is a countable noun. should we use "machines"?
