In this case, the person had the opportunity to do their homework earlier, but they did not take advantage of it, leading to a situation where it is no longer possible for them to improve their test.

    Explanation
    This sentence is an example of a Type 2 conditional sentence. It expresses a hypothetical situation that is unlikely or impossible to happen in reality. The speaker is saying that if it were not so late, they would go shopping. However, since it is already late, the condition cannot be fulfilled.

      Type 2 ( Condition in theory possible to fulfill)

    • C.

      Type 3 ( Condition not possible to fulfill too late)

    Correct Answer
    C. Type 3 ( Condition not possible to fulfill too late)
    Explanation
    This sentence suggests that the speaker is talking about a past event where someone didn't drive carefully and as a result, they crashed into another car. The phrase "if they had driven carefully" indicates a hypothetical situation that didn't actually happen. The use of "wouldn't have crashed" suggests that the crash did happen, meaning it is too late to fulfill the condition of driving carefully to prevent the crash. Therefore, the correct answer is Type 3 (Condition not possible to fulfill too late).

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What would you do if you saw a robber?

    • C.

      Type 3 ( Condition not possible to fulfill too late)

    Correct Answer
    B. Type 2 ( Condition in theory possible to fulfill)
    Explanation
    Type 2 (Condition in theory possible to fulfill) means that it is theoretically possible for someone to fulfill the condition of what they would do if they saw a robber. This means that the person could have a plan or strategy in mind for dealing with a robber, but it may not necessarily be practical or feasible in reality. It is important to note that this answer does not imply that the person will actually be able to carry out their plan if they encounter a real-life situation with a robber.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If lisa had got up late, she would not have been late for work.

    • A.

      Type 1 ( condition possible to fulfill)

    • B.

      Type 2 ( Condition in theory possible to fulfill)

    • C.

      Type 3 ( Condition not possible to fulfill too late)

    Correct Answer
    C. Type 3 ( Condition not possible to fulfill too late)
    Explanation
    This sentence suggests that Lisa was late for work because she got up late. The use of "would not have been" indicates a hypothetical situation in the past, implying that if Lisa had not gotten up late, she would not have been late for work. However, since she did get up late, it means that the condition of not being late for work was not possible to fulfill. Therefore, the correct answer is Type 3, as the condition was not possible to fulfill due to Lisa getting up late.

  • 11. 

    If Amy does the washing up,

    • C.

      Her brother would have cleared the table.3

    Correct Answer
    A. Her brother will clear the table.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Her brother will clear the table." This is because the sentence is in the present simple tense, indicating a future event that is likely to happen. The use of "will" suggests a future action that is conditional upon Amy doing the washing up.

      He could have got a good mark in the test.

    Correct Answer
    B. He could get a good mark in the test.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "he could get a good mark in the test." This is because the sentence is talking about a hypothetical situation, where learning new words could potentially lead to a good mark in the test. The use of "could" indicates the possibility or potential outcome.

    • C.

      If you have come with me.

    Correct Answer
    B. If you came with me.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if you came with me." This is because the sentence is in the second conditional form, which is used to talk about hypothetical or unreal situations. In this case, the speaker is saying that they would go to the party if the person they are speaking to came with them. The use of "came" in the past simple tense is appropriate because it matches the hypothetical nature of the situation.

    • C.

      If he had had more time.

    Correct Answer
    B. If he had more time.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if he had more time." This is because the sentence is in the conditional form and is expressing a hypothetical situation. The use of the past perfect tense ("had") is appropriate here to indicate a counterfactual condition. The sentence suggests that the uncle does not currently have enough time to stay longer in York, but if he did have more time, he would stay longer.

      If we had forgotten our homework again.

    Correct Answer
    A. If we forget our homework again.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if we forget our homework again." This is because the sentence is in the present tense, indicating a general truth or habitual action. The use of "will" suggests a future consequence, indicating that the teacher's unhappiness is a likely outcome if the action of forgetting homework is repeated. The other options ("if we forgot our homework again" and "if we had forgotten our homework again") are in the past tense and do not fit the context of the sentence.

      I would not have played hockey.

    Correct Answer
    B. I would not play hockey
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I would not play hockey" because the phrase "If I were you" suggests a hypothetical situation where the speaker is imagining themselves in someone else's position. In this hypothetical scenario, the speaker is stating that if they were in the other person's position, they would choose not to play hockey. The verb "would" is used to indicate a hypothetical or conditional action in this context.

      Which way would you have gone?

    Correct Answer
    B. Which way would you go?

      I'd have gone with you.

    Correct Answer
    A. I'll go with you
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I'll go with you" because the phrase "I'll" is a contraction of "I will," indicating a future action. The speaker is offering to go with the other person in the future, suggesting a willingness and intention to accompany them. The other options, "I'd go with you" and "I'd have gone with you," imply conditional or past actions, which do not fit the context of the given sentence.

    • A.

      If you will take your medicine.

    • B.

      If you took your medicine.

    • C.

      If you had taken your medicine.

    Correct Answer
    C. If you had taken your medicine.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "If you had taken your medicine." This is because the sentence is discussing a hypothetical situation in the past, indicating that the person did not take their medicine. The use of the past perfect tense "had taken" suggests that the action of not taking the medicine occurred before the hypothetical situation of sleeping better.

    Rate this question:

  • 21.

    Correct Answer

    d'have come
    would've come
    Explanation
    The correct answer for this question is "would have come." This is because the sentence is in the conditional form, indicating that the action of coming by bike is dependent on the weather being better. The phrase "would have" is used to express a hypothetical situation in the past. The other options, "d'have come" and "would've come," are informal contractions of "would have come" and can also be considered correct.

    If we were older, you _________ ( to go) to the party.

    Correct Answer
    would go
    d'go
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would go". In the conditional sentence "if we were older", the verb "go" is in the past tense.

The option "d'go" is not a grammatically correct form of the verb and does not make sense in the given sentence.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "will have,'ll have". This is because the sentence is discussing a future possibility, indicating that John's mother will have more time for him if he does the washing up. Both "will have" and "'ll have" are future tense forms indicating that the action of having more time will occur in the future.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    If Steven had taken his camera, he ________________ ( to take) nice pictures.

    Correct Answer
    would have taken
    d'have taken
    would've taken
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would have taken", "d'have taken", and "would've taken". These are all valid contractions of the conditional form "would have taken". The sentence is in the past unreal conditional tense, indicating a hypothetical situation in the past. The use of "would have taken" suggests that if Steven had taken his camera, he would have been able to capture nice pictures. The contractions "d'have taken" and "would've taken" are informal variations of "would have taken".

    If Sarah  _______________ ( not / to eat) so much junk food, she could have been in the school hockey team

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had not eaten" or "hadn't eaten". Both of these options are in the past perfect tense, indicating that Sarah did not eat junk food in the past. The use of "had" suggests that her not eating junk food was a condition that was not fulfilled, resulting in her not being able to be in the school hockey team.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    He can write good stories, if he _______________ ( to feel ) like it.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    If you listened carefully, you _________________ ( to know) about it.

    Correct Answer
    would know
    d'know
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would know." This is because the phrase "If you listened carefully" implies a hypothetical situation or a condition that is not true in the present. In this case, the speaker is suggesting that if someone had listened carefully in the past, they would have knowledge or information about something. The alternative answer "d'know" is not grammatically correct and does not fit in the sentence.
