Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Write the verb in parenthesis in simple past.Last year I (spend) my holiday in Ireland.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Last year refers to a specific time in the past, indicating that the action of spending the holiday in Ireland has already occurred. Therefore, the verb should be in the simple past tense, which is "spent".

    Write the verb in parenthesis in simple past.I (travel) around by car with two friends.

    Correct Answer
    traveled
    Explanation
    The verb "traveled" is the correct answer because it is the past tense form of the verb "travel." In the sentence, the speaker is referring to a past event where they went on a trip with two friends, using a car as their mode of transportation. Therefore, "traveled" accurately reflects the action of the speaker in the past.

    Write the verb in parenthesis in simple past.We (visit) lots of interesting places.

  • 5. 

    Write the verb in parenthesis in simple past.In the evenings we usually (go) to a pub.

    Correct Answer
    went
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "went" because the sentence is talking about a past routine or habit. The verb "go" needs to be in the simple past tense to match the time frame of "in the evenings." Therefore, "went" is the correct form of the verb.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Write the verb in parenthesis in simple past.We (be) very lucky with the weather.

    Correct Answer
    were
    Explanation
    The verb "be" is used in the simple past tense to indicate an action or state that occurred in the past. In this sentence, the subject "we" is referring to a group of people, and the verb "were" is the correct past tense form of "be" to agree with the subject. The sentence is stating that "we" were fortunate or fortunate with the weather in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Write the verb in parenthesis in simple past.It (not / rain) a lot.

    Correct Answer
    didn't rain, did not rain
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "didn't rain, did not rain" because the sentence is in the negative form and refers to the past. In English, the simple past tense of the verb "to rain" is "rained." However, when forming the negative past tense, we use the auxiliary verb "did" followed by "not" and the base form of the verb, which is "rain." Therefore, the correct answer is "didn't rain, did not rain."
