"Hardest hit on that terrible day ten years ago was the Indonesian city of Banda Aceh, on Sumatra's northern tip. More than 60,000 of its 264,000 residents perished—about 35 percent of the total lost in Indonesia."
"Then the war began. During the next year and a half, Ronald completed his degree in English and then got married to Edith before being sent off to fight in the trenches."
His marrying Edith - His being sent to war - His completing his degree
"According to a study A) conducted in the USA, pupil-tutoring is preferred B) rather than computerized instruction and American teachers say that C) no other recent innovation D) had proved so consistently successful."- (I thought the answer might be "rather than" and of replacing it with "to". Also, I suspected of "had proved" needed to be "have proved", but I was uncertain.)
"Jean Bond, who is running the special unit from Warwick University’s education department, says that the main benefit of tutoring is that it helps build up the adolescents’ self esteem."
("It helps building up" sound like the correct form to me, why am I wrong?)
5) Same type of exercise, only one is incorrect:
"The older children need A) practice in reading, but if they had to do it in their own classes, they B) would say it was kids stuff and they get embarrassed C)whoever they have to do D) it."
-(Why do we not have to say "...and they would get embarrassed" in the following part of the sentence and with what we can replace "whoever" or in what way would we rearrange that part of the sentence?)
