toeic Day 6 – Grammar Practice 2
Don’t worry if you are not good at vocabulary. There are other ways to succeed the sentence completion test. By analyzing grammar structure, you can eliminate the incorrect choice, thus increase your probability of choosing the correct answer. I can guarantee that studying grammar is more useful than memorizing a large bunch of vocabularies. Grammar is fixed rule that can be applied to any context. Meanwhile, there are too many vocabularies. No matter how many of them you can memorize, there is not much chance that they are going to be in the test.
I’m not saying that vocabulary is unimportant but I think you should spend more time on grammar. Here are more examples on how to analyze the test.
His self-confidence, values ———— sense of responsibility enabled him to achieve success.
A) or B) and C) also D) but
As you can see that ‘self-confidence’, ‘values’, ‘sense of responsibility’ are the characteristics that support success. Due to the agreement, we can eliminate D. but. We can also eliminate C. also because it’s usually used in a separate simple sentence.
A. or suggests that there only one of the characteristics is enough for building success. However, the meaning this sentence is trying to deliver is that the combination of all three qualifications is the key to success. Therefore, B. and is the right answer.
I would like to receive the correct merchandise as quickly as possible and will —————- your expeditious handling of this matter.
A) appreciate B) appreciated C) appreciating D) appreciates
When it comes to Tense, there is always a clue in given sentence. Adverb of frequency typically suggests present simple tense. A past simple sentence always includes time indicator such as yesterday, two months ago, last Tuesday. If it’s a compound sentence, use parallel structure. If it’s a complex sentence, consider the accompanying clause.
As for this example, the signifier is ‘will’. You know that this is a future simple tense. Will must be followed by a Verb in infinitive form. Therefore, A. appreciate is the correct answer.
The dancers exhibited complete ————————-.
A) confident B) competent C) confidence D)confidential
Sometimes, it could be very easy. You just have to know what type of word that should be filled in. As for this sentence,
The dancers + exhibited + complete + ?????
Subject + verb + adjective + ?????
Exhibit is a transitive verb, which requires an object. This sentence lacks an objective which means the missing word must be a noun. From this analysis, you can eliminate A. confident, B. competent, and D. confidential, which are adjectives. The remaining choice is the right answer, C. confidence.
The second part of reading test is text completion. The text may be an e-mail, company memo, facsimile, or letter. This part also relies on good knowledge of grammar but mostly on vocabulary. The grammar topics are about the same as the sentence completion.
