Account
These financial reports have numerous inconsistencies. How do you account for them?

Ask

Please ask the waiter for more table napkins. These are not enough for all of us.

Act
When it comes to managing the properties, I always act for my mother. She’s 89 years old and she can’t possibly deal with the documents by herself.


Apologize

apologize for being late. My car broke down in the middle of EDSA.


Blame

In the novel Holes, Stanley Yelnats  blames his great-great grandfather for his misfortunes. 


Beg

The old man is begging the passersby for some coins.


Call
The angry citizens were 
calling for the resignation of the city mayor. The people say that their mayor is too incompetent to be the leader of the city.


Charge
You are 
charging me P100.00 for this paper face mask? Are you crazy?


Exchange

In exchange for the hot and delicious meal that I gave you, could you please wash my car?

Hope

Does Science have a cure for cancer? Or, should we all continue hoping for a miracle?

Look
Yeah, I know that the inflation is global and life has gotten more difficult, but… could you at least try to look for a job and feed yourself?


Mistake

I don’t understand why people always mistake me for my sister. I don’t look like her; I am a lot prettier than her!


Pay

I will pay for these groceries. Please wait for me. This won’t take long.


Prepare

Have you been preparing for the test? Have you been studying your lessons?

Provide
In our family, I am the only one with a job. I provide for everybody.


Search
Do you think that the search for intelligent life in other planets will be successful, or do you think it’s just a waste of time and resources?


Thank

Thank you for the pastries you gave me. I absolutely love them!

Vote

Who are you going to vote for? Mr. Hill or Mr. Billy?} 

Wait

Let’s wait for the rain to stop. When it stops, we will walk to the bus station.
