I'm going to discuss the MCQs from today's grammar quiz. So if you have not yet taken the test, do not go through this write-up because I will reveal the answers in this post. Click here. It will take you to the quiz page. Take the test, and then come back to this article again. Okay! Let's begin.

1. The holidays flew by all too quickly.

The other options are quick and quickness. We are not going to choose one of these two words because they are not adverbs. We need an adverb that modifies flew by

The verb, fly, can be used to mean move or go quickly

For example, 

a. His car flew past the other vehicles.
b. She flew by him in the dining room.
c. The door suddenly flew open and two men burst in. 

There is one more thing to remember. The phrase, all too, puts emphasis on something that is not desirable

d. The holidays flew by all too quickly. 
e. The weekend passed all too quickly, and it was time to go to school again. 


2. Mr. Brown! Could I have a quick word? 

The other options are quickness and quicklyWe are not going to choose one of these two words because they are not adjectives. In this context, the adjective, quick, describes something that is done for a short time.

It may also describe something that is done in a short time. 

For example, 

a. Ronaldo scored two goals in quick succession

3. Is there anyone here who understands French? 

The other options are understand and understanding. We use a Third Person Singular Verb with anyone/anybody. That's why, understands is the correct answer. 

4. My grandfather derived great satisfaction from helping other people. 

The other two options are help and helped
A preposition is followed by a noun phrase (or a phrase that behaves like a noun phrase). It means the correct answer is helping. Why? Well, we need a gerund because a gerund behaves like a noun. 

5. His only problem is lack of confidence. 

The other three options are in, about, and with
When we use the word, lack, as a noun, it is followed by the preposition, of (lack of something). 

For example, 

a. She could not go to school because of lack of money. 
b. Our complete lack of focus contributed to our failure.
