Hi 7A girls,

 

Here are the questions and the people responsible to practice for the test on Preferences.

 

REMEMBER! You won’t see your comment approved until all the people responsible for the question comment.

These are your questions

Decide whether the following statements are TRUE or FALSE. Then, explain your choice.

1. The verb “prefer” is used to talk about general preferences.

2. When we use “would rather”, we can use a noun.

3. The sentence “I’d prefer having a sandwich” can also be expressed “I’d prefer a sandwich”.

4. In the sentence “James prefers driving to cycling” we can change “than” for “to”.

5. In the sentence “You’d prefer to see a movie to reading a book.” there is a mistake.

  1. In the sentence “James prefers driving to cycling” we can change “than” for “to”. ( false)

    because we cant use than with prefer, we can use only to.

  2. 3. The sentence “I’d prefer having a sandwich” can also be expressed “I’d prefer a sandwich”.

    True because when you use “would prefer”, it can be followed by a gerund, an infinitive or a noun. In this case in the first sentence you use a gerund and in the second you use a noun.

    Is true because the word prefer is to talk about general preferences and in other case like would prefer is used to talk about specific preferences

    • Good work Vale! 🙂
      A few corrections though:

      It is true because the word “prefer” is to talk about general preferences, and in other case, like “would prefer”, it is used to talk about specific preferences.

    True, the verb “prefer” is used to talk about general preferences, and we can also use it to talk about specific preferences.

    True because to talk about general preferences we use “prefer” but to talk about specific preferences we use “Would prefer” or “would rather”

    3. When we use “would rather”, we can use a noun.
    False because we can’t use a noun after we use “would rather”, after “would rather” you have to use a verb. The only way we can use a noun after is if we use “prefer” or “would prefer”

    2) False, because when we use “would rather”, we only can use a verb on its base form.

    False, because when you use prefer you use to and the verb you use when you use prefer can be gerunds or infinities and they are useing both.

    4. It is false because we never use “than” for prefer is just used when the sentence has rather but as be have prefer we use “to”.

    • Good Tati!

      Some corrections!

      It is false because we never use “than” with prefer; it is just used when the sentence has “rather”, but as we have prefer, we use “to”.

    True
    Because when you use “would prefer” you are talking about specific preferences, and with “prefer” you are talking about general preferences

    It is false because you can’t use a noun after “would prefer” you have to use a gerund ( the verb) or an infinitive.

    The statement (The sentence “You’d prefer to see a movie to reading a book.” there is a mistake.) is true because the sentence uses the first verb in infinitive and the other verb is used as a gerund and if you want to compare the preference between two things with “would prefer”; you need to put both verbs in their gerund forms.

    It is true because when you are going to compare two things and you use prefer or would prefer, the verb needs to be in gerund.

        Ir is true because in the sentence the first verb is use as a infinitive and the other as a gerund and if you want to compare using “would prefer” both verbs needs to be in gerund.

        • Ok good try Cami! But you didn’t have to correct. Besides you made other mistakes.

          It is true because in the sentence the first verb is used as an infinitive and the other as a gerund and if you want to compare using “would prefer”(,) both verbs need to be in gerund.

    Juanpis I thought that my question was the second jaja I’ll do mine

    3 The sentence “I’d prefer having a sandwich” can also be expressed “I’d prefer a sandwich”.

    It is TRUE because you can use “would rather” with a noun, gerund or infinitive so the first sentence can also be expressed as the second sentence.

    No. When we use “would rather” we must use a verb in its base form.

    Example: I would rather watch a movie than read a book.
