Choose the word that best completes the sentence:

1. Ms. Walters ............... to another branch, so your new financial advisor will be Mr. Merenda.
A. transferring
B. has transferred
C. transferable
D. transfer
  A. The gerund transferring is incorrect because a verb tense is needed here.
  B. The present perfect tense has transferred is needed because Ms. Walters' move happened at an unspecified time in the past, but has an effect in the present.
  C. The adjective transferable is incorrect as a verb is needed to describe the action of Ms. Walters.
  D. The simple present tense transfer cannot be used here because the action happened in the past.

2. The restaurant on Main Street offers a wide selection of gourmet desserts ............... several regions of the world.
A. until
B. by
C. with
D. from
  A. Until is a preposition of time. A preposition of space is needed here.
  B. By is used to indicate who or what performed an action. Regions of the world did not perform an action here.
  C. With shows that one thing accompanies another, for example when we say "I'd like chocolate sauce with my ice-cream." That is not the case here.
