Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Michael never buys a round of drinks.

    • A.

      If he can avoid it.

    • B.

      If he will avoid it

    • C.

      If he could avoid it

    • D.

      If he would avoid it

    Correct Answer
    A. If he can avoid it.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if he can avoid it" because the sentence is talking about Michael's habit of not buying a round of drinks. The use of "can" suggests that Michael has the ability or opportunity to avoid buying drinks, indicating that it is a choice or preference for him. The other options ("if he will avoid it," "if he could avoid it," "if he would avoid it") do not accurately convey the meaning of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    You can't be good at sports.

    • A.

      If you smoked a lot

    • B.

      If you will smoke a lot

    • C.

      If you smoke a lot

    • D.

      If you would smoke a lot

    Correct Answer
    C. If you smoke a lot
    Explanation
    Smoking has negative effects on physical health, such as reduced lung capacity, decreased endurance, and increased risk of respiratory diseases. These factors can significantly impair athletic performance, making it difficult to excel in sports. Therefore, if someone smokes a lot, it is unlikely that they will be good at sports.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Butter melts

    • A.

      If you will leave it out in the sun

    • B.

      If you left it out in the sun

    • C.

      If you would leave it out in the sun

    • D.

      If you leave it out in the sun

    Correct Answer
    D. If you leave it out in the sun
    Explanation
    Butter melts if you leave it out in the sun because heat from the sun causes the butter to reach its melting point. When the temperature of the butter exceeds its melting point, the solid fat molecules in the butter begin to break down and transition into a liquid state. This is why leaving butter out in the sun will result in it melting.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    I never get here on time.

    • A.

      If I had taken the train

    • B.

      If I take the train

    • C.

      If I will take the train

    • D.

      If I took the train

    Correct Answer
    B. If I take the train
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if I take the train." This answer is correct because the sentence is expressing a hypothetical situation in the present. The use of "if" followed by the present simple tense "take" indicates a possible action that could lead to a different outcome. The other options are incorrect because they either use the wrong verb tense or include "will," which is not necessary in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Sammy gets angry.

    • A.

      If you said he is fat

    • B.

      If you say he is fat

    • C.

      If you'll say he is fat

    • D.

      If you had said he is fat

    Correct Answer
    B. If you say he is fat
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if you say he is fat" because it is in the present tense and matches the tense used in the sentence "Sammy gets angry." The other options are either in the past tense or use incorrect verb forms, making them grammatically incorrect in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I would be very pleased.

    • A.

      If you buy books from my site

    • B.

      If you'll buy books from my site

    • C.

      If you had bought books from my site

    • D.

      If you bought books from my site

    Correct Answer
    D. If you bought books from my site
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if you bought books from my site". This is because the sentence is in the conditional form and is referring to a hypothetical situation in the present or future. The correct verb tense to use in this case is the simple past tense, "bought", to indicate a completed action.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    You'll have to work hard.

    • A.

      If you want to pass your English exam

    • B.

      If you wanted to pass your English exam

    • C.

      If you had wanted to pass your English exam

    • D.

      If you would want to pass your English exam

    Correct Answer
    A. If you want to pass your English exam
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if you want to pass your English exam" because it is the correct conditional statement to express the requirement for passing the exam. The other options either use incorrect verb tenses or do not convey the same meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If you don't go to bed soon.

    • A.

      You'll be tired tomorrow

    • B.

      You would be tired tomorrow

    • C.

      You were tired tomorrow

    • D.

      You had been tired tomorrow

    Correct Answer
    A. You'll be tired tomorrow
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "You'll be tired tomorrow" because it is a conditional sentence expressing a future consequence. The use of "you'll" indicates a future action, and "be tired" indicates the consequence of not going to bed soon. The other options ("would be," "were," and "had been") do not accurately convey the future consequence in the same way.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    I'd see you at the cinema.

    • A.

      If you have the time

    • B.

      If you had the time

    • C.

      If you will have the time

    • D.

      If you'd have the time

    Correct Answer
    B. If you had the time
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if you had the time" because it is in the correct conditional form. The sentence is expressing a hypothetical situation, where the speaker is saying they would see the person at the cinema if the person had the time. The correct form for this type of hypothetical condition is the past simple tense in the if-clause (if you had) and the would + base form of the verb in the main clause (would see).

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    I'll tell you all about it.

    • A.

      If you don't told it

    • B.

      If you didn'tt tell it

    • C.

      If you won't tell it

    • D.

      If you don't tell it

    Correct Answer
    D. If you don't tell it
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if you don't tell it". This answer is grammatically correct and matches the structure of the sentence. It properly completes the conditional statement by expressing the consequence of not telling something.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    I wouldn't be so keen on employing him.

    • A.

      If I didn't think he was the best person for the job

    • B.

      If I hadn't think he was the best person for the job

    • C.

      If I hadn't thought he was the best person for the job

    • D.

      If I think he was the best person for the job

    Correct Answer
    A. If I didn't think he was the best person for the job
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if I didn't think he was the best person for the job." This answer correctly uses the past tense "didn't think" to express the speaker's uncertainty about employing the person. The phrase "he was the best person for the job" indicates that the speaker believes the person is highly qualified and suitable for the position.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    If you read more in English.

    • A.

      I wouldn't like it very much

    • B.

      I liked it very much

    • C.

      I had liked it very much

    • D.

      I would like it very much

    Correct Answer
    D. I would like it very much
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I would like it very much." This is because the sentence is expressing a hypothetical or conditional situation. The use of "would" indicates a preference or desire in a hypothetical scenario. The other options do not convey the same meaning or grammatical structure.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    I wouldn't have got so angry with you.

    • A.

      If you planned your day better

    • B.

      If you would plan your day better

    • C.

      If you had planned your day better

    • D.

      If you will plan your day better

    Correct Answer
    C. If you had planned your day better
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if you had planned your day better." This answer is in the past perfect conditional tense, indicating that the speaker is referring to a hypothetical situation in the past. It suggests that if the person had planned their day better in the past, the speaker wouldn't have gotten so angry with them.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    You would speak better English.

    • A.

      If you got more work done

    • B.

      If you had got more work done

    • C.

      If you get more work done

    • D.

      If you will get more work done

    Correct Answer
    A. If you got more work done
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because it uses the correct verb form "got" in the conditional sentence. The sentence is expressing a hypothetical situation, so the past simple form "got" is used instead of "had got" or "get" in order to convey the correct meaning. Additionally, the use of "if" indicates a conditional statement, and the phrase "more work done" suggests that the speaker is referring to completing tasks or assignments.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    You'd have learnt more

    • A.

      If you read more in English

    • B.

      If you had read more in English

    • C.

      If you would read more in English

    • D.

      If you'll read more in English

    Correct Answer
    B. If you had read more in English
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if you had read more in English." This is because the sentence is in the conditional type 3, which is used to talk about unreal situations in the past. The phrase "if you had read more in English" implies that the person did not read enough in English in the past, and as a result, they did not learn as much as they could have.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    I'd have told you the news sooner

    • A.

      If I saw you

    • B.

      If I'd see you

    • C.

      If I'd seen you

    • D.

      If I see you

    Correct Answer
    C. If I'd seen you
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if I'd seen you." This is because the sentence is in the past conditional tense, indicating a hypothetical situation. The structure "if + subject + had + past participle" is used to express a past unreal condition. In this case, it implies that the speaker did not see the person in the past and as a result, they were unable to share the news earlier.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    I'd have helped you.

    • A.

      If you told me there was a problem

    • B.

      If you'd told me there was a problem

    • C.

      If you'd tell me there was a problem

    • D.

      If you'll tell me there was a problem

    Correct Answer
    B. If you'd told me there was a problem
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if you'd told me there was a problem." This is the correct answer because it uses the correct conditional form of the verb "tell" in the past tense ("told") and the correct form of the auxiliary verb "had" ("you'd"). The sentence is expressing a hypothetical situation in the past, where the speaker is saying that they would have helped if they had been informed about the problem.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    I'd have bought the bigger model.

    • A.

      If I'd be able to afford it

    • B.

      If I were able to afford it

    • C.

      If I'll be able to afford it

    • D.

      If I'd been able to afford it

    Correct Answer
    D. If I'd been able to afford it
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if I'd been able to afford it." This is because the sentence is in the past conditional tense, indicating a hypothetical situation in the past. The phrase "if I'd been able to afford it" correctly expresses the condition of not being able to afford the bigger model in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    I would never have believed it was possible

    • A.

      If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes

    • B.

      If I didn't see it with my own eyes

    • C.

      If I wouldn't see it with my own eyes

    • D.

      If I won't see it with my own eyes

    Correct Answer
    A. If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes." This answer is correct because it is in the past perfect tense, which is used to express an unreal or hypothetical condition in the past. The speaker is saying that they would not have believed something was possible if they had not personally witnessed it.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    I wouldn't have met up with John.

    • A.

      If I'd stayed at home

    • B.

      If I'd stay at home

    • C.

      If I stayed at home

    • D.

      If I didn't stay at home

    Correct Answer
    A. If I'd stayed at home
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "if I'd stayed at home" because it is a correct conditional construction in the past tense. The sentence suggests that the speaker did meet up with John, implying that they did not stay at home. The use of "if I'd" is a contraction of "if I had," indicating a hypothetical situation in the past.
