Sorry, I have a question, there is a sentence says "The size of the tree and it’s mythical status have led it to...", I wonder why it is not "The size of the tree and ITS mythical status have led it to..."?

1. den (= hideout). Reason: According to local folklore... = legend has it...

2. height. Reason: a girth of 10 metres = tree's trunk is 10 metres

3. joined (= fused). Reason: several trees ... = more than one tree

4. height (= limbs). Reason: ... be held up by props = ... require the partial support

5. put in (= sell). Reason: put in for auction = illegally sell... auction website.

1. den
2. circumference
3. joined
4. branches
5. put in

I guess I made wrong answer: 2. circumference (=girth)... didn't know synonym

Correct typo: 4. branches (= limbs)

1. den
2. circumference
3. joined
4. branches
5. put in

1.den
2.circumference
3.joined
4.branches
5.putup

1. put up = to stay at night = hide out
2. circumference - girth
3. joined - fused together
4. branches -
5. put in - offer

1.den =hideout
2.circumference -girth
3. joined
4. branches
5. put up

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. den
2. circumference
3. joined
4. branches
5. put up

We say "put something up" for auction

Thanks for the practice

Well noticed Emma. That was a mistake in the passage - I'll correct it!

1.den

Hi Simon,

It's not that I'm bragging about it, but I tried answering the questions without looking at the passage and got all of it right. I just tried to figure which word will perfectly fit the sentence, like in the cases of questions 1 and 5, there is no perfect word to complete the thought other than the words "den" and "put up" respectively.So just a thought Simon, would that strategy help me out on the actual exam? Thanks

1-den
2- circumference
3-joined
4- branches
5- put in

Hi simon ,
what are the best answers? Thanks

1. den = hideout
2. girth = circumference
3. joined = fused
4. branches = limbs
5. put up = sell

1.den
2.height
