Hi John,
I like exercises like this one.

It's john! yeah I got here ok, don't worry the _journey _ was a bit stressful , though the bus _driver__ took me to the wrong _destination _, so I had to find _different _ arrangements. It took me forever to find the correct _ticket__ when I _arrived___ eventually _trouble free__, I __gave____ and __handed_ticket __ to the lady and I went straight to the _departure lounge_____.
I am here now with Auntie Sue, so everything is just _fine____.


I did my best and not sure about my responses.
Thanks for this beneficial post.

The driver would be stressed or stressed out, but colloquially some people would say he was stressful meaning full of stress and as a result he made everybody stressful and also the journey to be stressful.

And at every airport the systems are different, the security will ask for passports and tickets or boarding passes or seat numbers at different stages.
Passengers will have tickets or boarding passes ready and a security person will ask for the seat number, and you will reply this hasn't happened before. The lady who was here five minutes ago was friendly and she didn't need my seat number.---> If you don't know your seat number I can't let you continue, What the heck!! - and half hour later the police are called, these tests do not train you how to deal with that everyday occurrence.

can a person be stressful
yes they can, it is a common way to describe a person.

yes that exercise will work but there is now a minor correction to the text "I GAVE my __ AND __

----- or this will be what the test wanted

I would give you 10/10 because you answered before my Edit that would have misled you into giving the answers you did..

but there are still many other options,that would be used and make sense colloquially

I don't think it would be correct to say the driver was stressful. His manner of driving the bus could be stressful but I don't believe it is correct to describe a person as stressful. (I am not a professional teacher, just a native speaker).

On the actual test where as explained above you could have selected the journey was stressful or the driver was stressful, to begin the letter. It would have eliminated either Journey or driver from the list but the letter could still have been written starting with either the journey was stressful or the driver was stressful. And still valid letters could have been writing using the other available words. It would just have changed the order and places I went to and what I choice to call them, which happens in everyday speech anyway. some people say security some say terminal some say gate. It just means the place where I went or the general area, it happens frequently that someone says I'll meet you at the security when they mean the general terminal because they know they will be generally in that area.
