B2 Verbs Grammar Set 1. This is set an B2 Level of English. In this kind of exercise especially in the Cambridge English First (FCE) multiple choice question, all alternatives have similar meaning and are therefore easily confused, but only one fits grammatically.

Look at this example:

Mr Trump ________ me he was a great person.

A told      B explained     C said    D reported

You cannot say Mr Trump explained me that …, Mr Trump said me that … or Mr Trump reported me that … (You can only say Mr Trump explained to me that …, Mr Trump said that … {without me] and Mr Trump to me that …), so only Mr Trump told me that … is grammatically correct.

Now it’s you turn. Read through the sentences below, then decide which answer best fits each space.
