Before too much time and effort is put into a project, the planners must assess whether the client’s request is at all feasible. The planners must therefore perform a feasibility study, which should include a number of factors, such as cost, size, quality and time. The following questions are ones that Tim Smith would like to answer before the next meeting with the client. Match the short answers with the appropriate question.

a) Is the client's scheme realistic Yes, it might.
b) Can the trees be removed from the plot? No, it hasn't
c) Might it be necessary to have a soils report made? Yes, they can.
d) Does the size of the plot seem appropriate for the scale of the project? No, it won't.
e) Are there any specific features in the neighbourhood that the design should relate to? Yes, it is.
f) Has the site been built on before Yes, there are.
g) Will the soil be contaminated? Yes, it does.
h) Should the architect return to the site to take some measurements and photos? Yes, he should.

Grammar note:
These questions were all yes/no questions. They can therefore all be answered with yes or no, and not with a full sentence as is the case for W-questions, e.g. Where are the trees on the plot? However, we tend to answer them with a little bit more than just a simple yes or no. The short answers repeat the subject as a pronoun and the modal verb used in the question.
