You shawty (sounds like you shall tea, or its essential to drink tea, so it's a joke)

Q: What does Q: Where do you find a tortoise with no legs? A: Wherever you left it! mean?
A: It is difficult to explain a joke, because analyzing humor makes it less funny. I will do my best.

The question is asking "where" to find the tortoise, with emphasis on the place. The person who is asked this joke would try to think of a place where a legless tortoise could be found. The answer is both a little suprising and a little obvious, once you hear it.

A tortoise with no legs cannot move. So if you are trying to find it, you should check the spot where you last saw the tortoise. It is probably still there.

This joke has a similar structure to another one I've heard: "Where does a 500-lb gorilla sit?" Answer - "Wherever he wants!"

The punchline is that if he is that big (and also a gorilla), he can just sit anywhere he wants to sit. No one is going to tell him that he cannot sit somewhere, because he is too big and intimidating. Do you want to upset a 500-lb gorilla? Of course not. He is huge! (and also a gorilla)
Q: What does Q and R mean?
A: Q means qualified.

R means qualified as reserve. I'm not sure what that means, but I think it means that if an athlete is unable to compete, the best reserve athlete will take their place.

Synonyms of "Q" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Q : Are you looking for a job? A : Yes I am. and Q : Are you looking for a job? A : Yes I do. ?

Q: What is the difference between Q: What can you see in the park? My answer: I can see Emily sitting on the bench in the park. and Q: What can you see in the park? Teacher’s answer: I can see Emily sitting on a bench in the park. ?
A: Unless there is only one bench, and your listener already knows about the bench, you need to use “a” because you’re introducing it to the listener. There is a bench in the park and Emily is sitting on it. If you use “the,” you’re assuming your listener already knows exactly which bench you’re talking about - the (only) one in the park.

My answer is "Does he cook meat for his dinner tonight too?"

But right answer is "Is he cooking...."

But why use "is" not "does"?

Hope someone explain to me,please and thanks!
A: This is a tricky one. "Does" usually asks questions about:

- things that happen regularly: "Does he cook meat for dinner?" is asking about many dinners, not a specific one.

- things that are happening right now: "Does this hurt?"

I hope that helps, this is a tough bit of grammar to explain!
Q: Q: They're football boots.________(I have) them since I was about sixteen.

The answer is "I've been having"or"I've had"? Why?
A: In English, a sentence won't make sense AND sound natural if the sentence is not structured properly.

Past + past = ✓
Present + present = ✓
Past + present = ✗

I've had(past) them since I was(past) about sixteen.
I've been having(past) them since I was(past) about sixteen.

"Been having" states that you or someone else has been doing something for a while already which could be labeled as past tense.
