It was quite easy. I made one mistake with "drive" because of lack of attention. "Dive" was an uncertain word, but I guessed it. I looked it up in the dictionary and its meaning was unclear. Chris, could you clarify both mentioned meanings of this word (as a noun, of course).
I enjoyed doing this exercise, you understand how various and rich is English.
When we describe a place as a dive (usually a nigtclub or bar), we are saying that it is a dirty, sleazy place. It has a negative meaning and it is a casual word.
Thank you very much. The second meaning is somewhat of a sudden movement, as I understood.
Thanks, it was an interesting lesson.
Most of the times it was easy to guess the right answer.
Have a nice day!

Thanks Chris. My answers are correct but ı guessed some of them:)
The English Language is tricky because it borrows its words from so many different cultures and times. Words evolve with use and application.
