Question 1 Report
Fill in the gap with the option that best completes the sentence.
It was _____ who killed the goat.
The option that best completes the sentence is "he." The sentence is in the form of a subject-verb-object sentence, where the subject is the person or thing doing the action, the verb is the action being done, and the object is the person or thing receiving the action. In this sentence, the action is "killed the goat," and the object is "the goat." The missing word is the subject of the sentence, and it refers to the person who performed the action of killing the goat. The pronoun "he" is the subject pronoun used for males, and it fits the context of the sentence. To contrast, "his" is a possessive pronoun used to show ownership, "him" is an object pronoun used as the receiver of an action, and "us" is a pronoun used to refer to a group of people including the speaker. None of these options fits the context of the sentence as well as "he."
