Hi teachers,
Are the directions correct? These are just an example with the movie clip "The Box"
Complete the questions according to what you see and hear in the first movie clip of “The Box”.

Thanks.

Wouldn't it be "Answer the questions . . ."?

Hi Drag0n
Not really because the answers are like this:

She said, “_______ ___ __________ you ______________?”
( _____ ___________ ) _______ glass dome _____ _______ button __________.

Then I should use "complete; right? Oops! I made a mistake, it has to be "answers", not questions.

Complete the answers according to what you see and hear in the first movie clip of “The Box”.

David.

Ah. Definitely - 'complete the answers' sounds great.

I agree with OnTheVerge, 'Please fill in the blanks in the sentences below:'

Hi David.

Well, to me, they're the same.

"Fill in the blanks" seems a little more informal than 'complete', but otherwise they mean the same.

Hi Drag0n,
Thanks for confirming that! That's what I thought too.
