Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If I go on holiday next year, I ..............( take) some photos.

    The correct answer is "will take." In this sentence, the speaker is referring to a future event (going on holiday next year) and expressing their intention to take some photos during that time. The use of "will" indicates a future action or event.

  • 2. 

    If I .........(have) enough money, I would have bought some souvenirs too.

    The correct answer is "had had". In this conditional sentence, the speaker is expressing a hypothetical situation in the past. The first "had" indicates the past perfect tense, suggesting that the speaker did not have enough money in the past. The second "had" is used to form the past perfect tense of the verb "have", indicating that if the speaker had had enough money in the past, they would have bought some souvenirs.

  • 3. 

    If I lived on a desert island, I ..........(have to) go to school.

    If the person lived on a desert island, they would not be required to go to school. The phrase "didn't have to" indicates that there is no obligation or necessity for them to attend school in this specific scenario.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Unless it rains tomorrow, we ...............(swim) in the sea.

    The sentence is a conditional statement, expressing a future possibility. It states that if it doesn't rain tomorrow, the action of swimming in the sea will occur. The correct answer "will swim" is in line with the future tense and the conditional structure of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    I won't go to the party unless you .............(come) with me.

    The correct answer is "come" because the sentence is expressing a condition using the word "unless." The speaker is stating that they will only go to the party if the person they are speaking to accompanies them. Therefore, the word "come" is the correct verb form to complete the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I wouldn't go camping if I .............(be) you.

    The correct answer is "were." In this sentence, the speaker is giving advice or expressing a hypothetical situation. The verb "be" is used in the subjunctive mood to indicate an unreal or hypothetical condition. In this case, "were" is the correct form of the verb "be" to match the subject "I."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    I ..............(buy) your mother a hamster, unless I was sure she really wanted one.

    The correct answer is "wouldn't buy" because it indicates a hypothetical situation in the past. The speaker is saying that they would not have bought a hamster for the person's mother unless they were certain that she wanted one. The use of "wouldn't" suggests a conditional statement and shows that the speaker's action of buying the hamster is dependent on the mother's desire for it.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If he had learned for the exam, he ........(pass) it.

    The correct answer is "would have passed" because the sentence is in the past unreal conditional form. The use of "had learned" indicates that the learning for the exam did not happen in the past. Therefore, the result of passing the exam is also hypothetical and unreal. To express this idea, the correct verb form is "would have passed."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If I ........(leave) the window open, the carpet wouldn't have gotten wet.

    The correct answer is "had left" because it is the past perfect tense of the verb "leave" which is used to indicate an action that happened before another past action. In this sentence, it implies that if the speaker had left the window open in the past, the carpet would not have gotten wet.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If the tourists had had a map, they .....( lose) their way.

    The answer "wouldn't have lost" is correct because it is a hypothetical past condition that suggests that if the tourists had a map, they would not have lost their way. The use of "wouldn't have" indicates a hypothetical outcome that did not happen in reality.
