Tim, thanks a lot for help, the first one which matches the blank spaces is demonstrated, indeed.
However, the second one is a problem because you have to use ON. Also, you must repeat the Present Perfect tense and the words "always" and "graffiti painters." And you must use no more than 5 words. That is why I suspect there is a mistake and wanted to make sure. First I supposed the author of the exam had been thinking about "looking up to" but got the prepositions messed up and wrote ON. But it would still make too many words.
I have no key to some competitions available online. I can manage on my own but sometimes I don`t understand the intention behind certain tasks.
Can you help?
I have always admired graffiti painters for their courage and determination in creating their art. ON I ............................... for their courage and determination in creating art.
I, as well as Tim, have no idea what they mean by this one!
Thank you all for your engagement.
The exam is Olympic Competition for junior high school students from Świętokrzyskie voivodship. Those guys are brave freedom fighters but not too clever. I found 5 mistakes in last year`s edition of the exam, including spelling: e.g., runaways in a text about airports.
If runaways find themselves on a runway they should run away.
Or the authors were thinking about the expression “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” usually refers to secondhand clothing. But in the case of Columbia Design League’s annual “Runaway Runway” show, one man’s trash could literally become a showstopper. The design competition and recycle fashion show has showcased looks made from bubble wrap, fishing jigs, old pool covers, film canisters, 35mm slides, bicycle tire tubes and parachutes – and that’s just scratching the surface of materials used.

Yes, but this expression expands 'way beyond just secondhand clothing... It can actually refer to ANYTHING that one man may believe to be of no value, while another man may see as priceless. This could refer not only to material goods, but also religion, beliefs, political causes, and sadly, also people!
