Hello.
I think there is a better answer...4 The people in the tourist information office were very ........ and answered all our questions without any problems. (thoughtful)
4 a large city …..................
My answer: economical, industrial, creative, famous. Those in red are usually applied to a person, not a city.
6 a new car …........
My answer: enjoyable, comfortable, reliable.
Although it may be enjoyable to take a ride in a car, you wouldn't write an enjoyable new car. A comfortable new car...a reliable new car, OK.
I hope this helps. Sherry

Hello again.
4. The people in the tourist information office were very helpful and answered all our questions without any problems.
Helpful works very well, much better than thoughtful, since it is their job to help. I didn't see helpful on the list, so I had in mind another adjective which would be true of a person who was able to answer all questions without any problem.
Sherry

Hello,

you couldn't find the adjective "helpful" in these exercises, because it's in the opposite page, and I'm sorry but I couldn't write this whole page !
Thank you very much.
Regards.
