Flashcard 11 - Next Generation Writing Flashcard Set for the ACCUPLACER Test

Back

The correct answer is:

Mom was sure Brian would lose his wallet if he kept it in his pocket while skateboarding.


Explanation:

One o makes a big difference. In the case of lose vs. loose, loose means to unfasten or set free (Mark got the turtle loose from the plastic noose.). But, lose one “o” and now you’ve changed the word to mean being deprived of or unable to find something. Remember, you lose one o and you get a satisfying “oo” when you loosen your tight belt.
