On the first Saturday of spring, Jeremy woke up thinking about only one thing: riding his bike. The only problem was that his bike was buried behind boxes in the garage from his family's recent move. (1) __________ Sure enough, Jeremy could not even locate his bike, which was hidden behind the moving boxes. This was going to be a bigger job than he thought. Sighing heavily, Jeremy began shifting boxes out of the way. (2) __________ This sight made him grin because he knew that he would be riding his bike in no time now. Another 10 minutes later, and there the bike was, a little dusty and with flat tires. Fortunately, the bike pump and a rag were nearby, so he got to work. By the time he'd finished, Jeremy was sweaty and tired, but he barely noticed. With a surge of happiness, Jeremy wheeled out his shiny bike and donned his helmet. (3) __________ Which sentence below best fits in blank #3? a. There, at the very back of the garage next to the lawnmower, stood his beloved bicycle. b. Using the rag, Jeremy lovingly dusted every inch of the bike's frame until it shone brightly. c. He hopped on the bike and sped away, imagining all the adventures that awaited him. d. He had saved his hard-earned money from his paper route to purchase the latest bicycle.
Is this a test?
Well which one seems to make the most sense within context? Blank #3 is after he after he finds his bike and also after he cleans it. He had just wheeled his bike out of the garage and put on a helmet. So right away we can say option A and B are out. Option D would make no sense to say context-wise, so I believe the answer to be option C, He hopped on the bike and sped away, imagining all the adventures that awaited him.
