A hotel is supposed to be a home away from home, but the one we ___17___ was hell away from home. Initially, we were deceived by the beautiful surroundings and by the manager’s ___18___ which was warm and inviting. After the usual ___19___ and signing of forms, we were checked in. We later discovered, to our utter dismay, that the hotel ___20___ many facilities, and that the few available ___21___ were either faulty or ___22___. The rooms were somehow tolerable, but there was something we could not manage, food. We complained. In fact, we are just to ___23___ alive since whatever was on the ___24___ gave no ___25___. The service there was definitely ___26___. By the time we were due to ___27___ the following day, everybody heaved a sigh of ___28___.
Maybe I heard the manager say: “Did you ___29___ a nice stay?” and thinking he heard somebody say yes, he quickly added: “please ___30___ again.”
Which of the following fills the gap numbered 21?
The correct answer is B.
In the passage, the writer describes the experience at a hotel that was not very pleasant. The question asks you to fill the gap numbered 21. To answer this question, you need to understand the context in which the missing word is used.
The sentence with the missing word is: "We later discovered, to our utter dismay, that the hotel ___20___ many facilities, and that the few available ___21___ were either faulty or ___22___." The writer is talking about the limited facilities provided by the hotel.
Looking at the options, the correct answer is Option B: ones. This is because the word "ones" refers to the few available facilities mentioned earlier in the sentence. The other options do not fit the context of the sentence.
So, the completed sentence should read: "We later discovered, to our utter dismay, that the hotel ___20___ many facilities, and that the few available ones were either faulty or ___22___."
