Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    I _________ (be) an architect, but then I trained to be a graphic designer. A. use to B. used to have C. used to be ​​​​​​​D. will use to

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "used to be." This is because the sentence is referring to a past occupation or profession. The phrase "used to" is used to talk about past habits or states that are no longer true in the present. In this case, the person used to be an architect but then trained to be a graphic designer, indicating a change in their profession.

  • 2. 

    She _________ (go) shopping on Wednesdays because it’s market day. A. usually goes B. usually go C. usually went ​​​​​​​D. usually will go

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "usually goes" because the verb "go" needs to be conjugated to match the subject "she". The word "usually" indicates a habitual action, which is why the simple present tense is used.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    I ______ do this, or she would not be happy. A. have to B. has to C. had to D. will have to

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had to." This is because the sentence is in the past tense, and "had to" is the correct past tense form of the phrase "have to." It indicates that the speaker was required or obligated to do something in the past in order to make someone else happy.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    She ______ lied, but she didn't. A. have could B. could have C. can have D. have can

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "could have" because it is used to express a possibility or ability in the past. In this sentence, it suggests that she had the ability or possibility to lie, but she chose not to. The word order "could have" is the correct form in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    _________ (you / work) in the Oxford Street office before you came here? A. Do you B. Did work C. Have you work ​​​​​​​D. Did you use to work

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Did you use to work." This is the correct answer because the question is asking about a past action or habit of working in the Oxford Street office before coming to the current location. The phrase "use to" is used to talk about past habits or actions that are no longer true in the present. Therefore, the correct form of the verb "work" in the past tense is "use to work."

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    When we were young, we often _________ (play) football in the park. A. used to play B. play C. used and play ​​​​​​​D. would play

    Explanation
    The phrase "When we were young" indicates that the action of playing football in the park happened in the past. The phrase "used to play" is the correct answer because it is the appropriate past tense form of the verb "play" in this context. It implies a habitual or repeated action in the past. The other options, "play," "used and play," and "would play," do not accurately convey the past tense or the habitual aspect of the action.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    I _________ (not / like) Jane much, but now we get on really well. A. could have liked B. can't like C. didn't use to like ​​​​​​​D. can have liked

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "didn't use to like". This is because the sentence indicates a change in the speaker's feelings towards Jane. The phrase "didn't use to like" suggests that in the past, the speaker did not have positive feelings towards Jane, but now they have a good relationship. The other options do not convey the same meaning or fit grammatically in the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Tommaso _________ (eat) here on Fridays, so we might see him. A. have usually eats B. usually eats C. eaten ​​​​​​​D. have eats

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "usually eats". This is because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "Tommaso" is a singular third-person noun. In this case, we use the base form of the verb "eat" with the third-person singular pronoun "he", which is "eats". The adverb "usually" indicates that this is a regular occurrence.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    She _________ (not / be) so quiet. She must be tired today. A. am not B. aren't usually C. can be usually D. isn't usually

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "isn't usually." This is because the sentence is in the present tense and refers to a habitual action or behavior. The word "usually" indicates that the subject is not typically quiet, but today she must be tired, which is why she is quiet.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    You never _________ (watch) sport. Why do you do it now? A. has been watching B. used to watch C. watch ​​​​​​​D. have been watching

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "used to watch." This is because the sentence is in the past tense and is referring to a habitual action that the person did in the past but no longer does. The phrase "used to" is used to indicate this past habit or action.
