Each question of this type has one grammar mistake. Choose the underlined portion that has the mistake.

Example:

(C) will
(D) anyway

In this case, we should choose (A) since I are tired is incorrect; the sentence should read I am tired, but I will study anyway.

Example:

I ______ tired, but I will study anyway.

(A) is

(C) am
(D) to be
