First And Second Conditional Test Quiz! - Quiz


Have you ever heard of the first and second conditional in grammar? The first and second conditional in English describe a present or future situation. The difference between the two variations depends on whether someone perceives the situation as possible or unlikely. It is typically an impossible situation that would never occur. Would you be able to pass a quiz on the same topic? Take the quiz and see for yourself. Remember to secure your certificate when you have finished the quiz.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If I _______ (be) in your shoes, I would change my car.

    • A.

      Was

    • B.

      Were

    • C.

      Am

    Correct Answer
    B. Were
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "were" because the sentence is in the subjunctive mood, expressing a hypothetical or unreal condition. In this case, the speaker is imagining themselves in a different situation (being in the other person's shoes). The verb "be" in the past subjunctive form "were" is used to match the hypothetical nature of the sentence.

      Had 

    • B.

      Has

    • C.

      Haves

    Correct Answer
    A. Had 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had". This is because the sentence is in the conditional form, indicating a hypothetical situation. The use of "had" in the if-clause suggests that Pamela does not currently have a job, and the result clause states that she would be happy if she did have a job.

    • A.

      Speak

    • B.

      Spoke

    • C.

      Speaks

    Correct Answer
    B. Spoke
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "spoke" because it is the past tense form of the verb "speak." In the given sentence, it indicates that if he had spoken more clearly in the past, the speaker would have been able to understand him better.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What would you______(do) if there was a fire at your house?

    • A.

      Do

    • B.

      Did

    • C.

      Does

    Correct Answer
    A. Do
    Explanation
    If there was a fire at your house, the appropriate action to take would be to "do" something. This implies that you would take some sort of action or engage in a specific behavior in response to the fire. The other options, "did" and "does," do not convey the same sense of immediate action or response.

    Rate this question:

      Obeyed

    • C.

      Obey

    Correct Answer
    B. Obeyed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "obeyed" because it is the past tense form of the verb "obey". In the given sentence, the use of the past tense suggests a hypothetical or unreal situation. It implies that if drivers had followed or adhered to the traffic rules in the past, there would have been fewer accidents.

      Stopped/would be

    • C.

      Stop/would be

    Correct Answer
    B. Stopped/would be
    Explanation
    If people stopped using cars completely, there would be much less pollution. This is because cars are a major source of air pollution, emitting harmful gases and particles into the atmosphere. By eliminating the use of cars, the amount of pollution generated would significantly decrease, resulting in cleaner air and a healthier environment.

      Could/do

    Correct Answer
    A. Could/would
    Explanation
    The question is asking about a hypothetical situation where the person has the opportunity to choose any company to work for. In this scenario, the correct answer is "could/would" because it expresses the possibility (could) and the preference (would) of the person in choosing a company to work for.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If I ___________ time tonight, I _______ finish the novel.

    • A.

      Have/would

    • B.

      Have/will

    • C.

      Had/will

    Correct Answer
    B. Have/will
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have/will". This is because the sentence is talking about a future action (finishing the novel) that is dependent on a present condition (having time tonight). Therefore, the present perfect "have" is used to indicate that the condition of having time is currently true, and the future tense "will" is used to express the action of finishing the novel.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If he ______ me "lazy" again, I ________ help him when he is in trouble. 

    • A.

      Call/won't

    • B.

      Calls/won't

    • C.

      Called/will

    Correct Answer
    B. Calls/won't
    Explanation
    If he calls me "lazy" again, I won't help him when he is in trouble. This sentence is in the present tense, so the verb "calls" is the correct form to use. The second part of the sentence is in the future tense, indicating a future action of not helping him. The modal verb "won't" is the correct form to indicate this future action.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Choose the correct sentence.

    • C.

      If the sun shines I will go swimming.

    Correct Answer
    C. If the sun shines I will go swimming.
    Explanation
    This sentence is the correct choice because it follows the correct structure for a conditional sentence. It uses the present simple tense ("the sun shines") in the if-clause and the future simple tense ("I will go swimming") in the main clause. This structure is used to express a possible future outcome based on a certain condition being met.

      If Jane passes her exams, her mother will be happy.

    Correct Answer
    C. If Jane passes her exams, her mother will be happy.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "If Jane passes her exams, her mother will be happy." This is the correct order of the words to form a grammatically correct and meaningful sentence. It follows the pattern of conditional sentences, where the "if" clause (Jane passes her exams) is followed by the result clause (her mother will be happy).

      Option 4"will buy" must be "buys"
