.
'Likewise' is an adverb, and therefore either modifies a verb (here, 'needs to depend')-- which it does not do here-- or begins a clause, which it also does not do here.

Beside is a preposition meaning 'next to': I'm sitting beside the fire.
Besides is an adverb meaning also': I don't want to watch this movie, and besides I'm tired.

Usual mistake twice.

The world needs to depend on other energy sources ......... oil and other non-renewable resources.

x(a) beside
(b) likewise
(c) besides
(d) also beside
After sending the beside changed besides so the test can be NEVER 10/10

I entered the trap!!! This was skilful.In my second test I wrote besides it was corrected "beside" I was so idiot that I believed, and I wrote "beside" consistently. Now the penny dropped, and I realized that who first corrected my correct answer HE/SHE MADE A FOOL OF ME.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT I STRUGGLE ON WITH ENGLISH-TEST-NET.

GOOD-BY PLEASE DELETE MY NAME FROM THE LIST.

REGARDS:
KATI SVABY

P.S: WHO CAUGHT UP WITH ME NOW HE /SHE CAN BE HAPPY BECAUSE THIS PERSON ACHIEVED HIS AIM. i AM VERY SORRY BUT I'VE GETTING TIRED. EVEN FOR A YOUNG THIS WOULD BE EXHAUSTING,HUMILIATING TO SAY NOTHING OF A PERSON OVER 72.
