---- electricity you use, ---- your bill will be.

Explanation:
The correct answer is C: The more / the higher.
Here's the detailed explanation:
- The phrase "the more" indicates an increase in something.
- The phrase "the higher" indicates an increase in value or amount.
- In the context of the sentence, it is talking about electricity usage and its impact on the bill.
- The more electricity you use, the higher your bill will be.
- This means that as the amount of electricity consumed increases, the amount of the bill also increases.
- Therefore, option C, "The more / the higher," is the correct answer.

This bed is not ---- for two people to sleep in.

To solve this question, we need to find the most appropriate word to fill in the blank that would make the sentence grammatically correct and convey the intended meaning. Let's analyze each option:
A: wide as
- This option is grammatically incorrect because it requires a noun after "as" to make a proper comparison.
B: wide enough
- This option makes the most sense and is grammatically correct. It implies that the bed is not large enough for two people to sleep in comfortably.
C: wider than
- This option is incorrect because it suggests that the bed is larger than something else, which is not mentioned in the sentence.
D: too wide
- This option is grammatically correct, but it changes the meaning of the sentence. It implies that the bed is excessively wide, rather than simply not being suitable for two people.
E: the widest
- This option is not fitting because it implies that the bed is the widest among a group of beds, which is not mentioned in the sentence.
Therefore, the correct answer is B: wide enough as it conveys the intended meaning that the bed is not suitable for two people to sleep in comfortably.

I wasn't ---- nervous before the interview ---- I usually am.

I wasn't so nervous before the interview  as I usually am.
In this sentence, they have compared how much you get nervous as comparison to the previous.

It's ---- to learn a foreign language in the country where it is spoken than in another country.

To answer this question, we need to compare the options and determine which one correctly completes the sentence. Let's analyze each option:
A: a lot easier
- This option uses the correct comparative form of the adjective "easy." It conveys the idea that learning a foreign language is easier in the country where it is spoken compared to another country.
B: much easy
- This option is grammatically incorrect. The adjective "easy" should be in its comparative form, which is "easier."
C: easiest
- This option uses the superlative form of the adjective "easy." However, the sentence context requires a comparative form, not a superlative.
D: more easily
- This option uses the correct comparative form of the adverb "easily." It implies that learning a foreign language is done with more ease in the country where it is spoken compared to another country.
E: the easier
- This option is grammatically incorrect. It lacks the adjective "easy" before the article "the."
Considering the above analysis, option A, "a lot easier," is the correct answer as it best completes the sentence and conveys the intended meaning.

---- a room is, ---- it is likely to be.

The more expensive a room is the more comfortable it is likely to be.

The fault in the engine is ---- this time than it was the last time.

To determine the correct answer, let's analyze the sentence and compare the degree of seriousness of the engine fault in the current situation with the last time.
The sentence structure suggests that the engine fault is more serious this time than it was the last time.
Now let's evaluate the options:
Option A:

much more serious

- This option correctly reflects the comparison of the degree of seriousness between the current situation and the last time. It implies that the engine fault is significantly more serious this time.
Option B:

as serious as

- This option suggests that the degree of seriousness is the same as the last time. However, the sentence indicates that the fault is more serious this time, making this option incorrect.
Option C:

so serious that

- This option implies that the seriousness of the engine fault is at a level that it causes a specific consequence. It doesn't convey the comparison between the current situation and the last time, so it is not the correct answer.
Option D:

a lot serious

- This option is grammatically incorrect. It should be "a lot more serious" to convey the comparison. Therefore, it is not the correct answer.
Option E:

far more seriously than

- This option is incorrect because it changes the adverb "serious" to an adverbial phrase "seriously," which alters the meaning of the sentence.
Therefore, the correct answer is option A:

much more serious

, as it accurately reflects the comparison of the degree of seriousness between the engine fault in the current situation and the last time.
