  1. Question 27
    I can’t open the drawer in my desk, it’s ________.
    A fixed
    B bolted
    C set
    D stuck
    E unmoved
    Sir, the machine gives opt D as correct ,but if we take it’s for ‘It is’ then opt A seems to be correct. I think it is confusing.can u explain this plz

    • fixed: adjective [not before noun] firmly fastened to a particular position
      fixed to/in/on
      – a mirror fixed to the bathroom wall

      stuck: adjective [not before noun] impossible or unable to move from a particular position
      – Sara tried to open the window but it was stuck.
      – They got stuck in a traffic jam.

      The difference between them is clear.

  2. The doctor told him to keep the tablets in his mouth and ________ them slowly.

    A swallow
    B suck
    C bite
    D. drink
    E. eat

    Sir, why is letter B an answer in this question? I don’t think we “suck the tablet”. I think we “swallow the tablet”. I think using the word “suck” is for liquids.

    • swallow: [intransitive, transitive] to make food or drink go down your throat and towards your stomach
      – He swallowed the last of his coffee and asked for the bill.
      – Most snakes swallow their prey whole.

      suck: [intransitive, transitive] to hold something in your mouth and pull on it with your tongue and lips
      – Don’t suck your thumb, dear.

      When you check the definitions of both words and the example sentences, you will understand why the answer for that question is “suck” but not “swallow“. Because, what the doctor told him to is to melt the tablets by sucking them not to swallow them.
