Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    1. If you work hard, you _____ the exam.

    • A.

      Pass

    • B.

      Will pass

    • C.

      Passed

    • D.

      Would pass

    Correct Answer
    B. Will pass
    Explanation
    The sentence is in the conditional form, indicating a hypothetical situation. The phrase "If you work hard" suggests that the action of working hard is a condition for the outcome of passing the exam. In this case, the correct answer is "will pass," as it indicates a future event that is likely to happen if the condition is met.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    2. If a dinosaur _____ into the class, I'd take it to the canteen.

    • A.

      Comes

    • B.

      Will come

    • C.

      Came

    • D.

      Would come

    Correct Answer
    C. Came
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "came". This is because the sentence is in the second conditional form, which expresses a hypothetical or unreal situation. In this case, the speaker is imagining what they would do if a dinosaur entered the class. Since the situation is unreal, the verb "came" is used in the past tense to indicate an imaginary event.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    3. If my computer _____ , I'll ask Laura for help.

    • A.

      Crashes

    • B.

      Will crash

    • C.

      Crashed

    • D.

      Would crash

    Correct Answer
    A. Crashes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "crashes" because it is the present simple form of the verb "crash" and matches the conditional sentence structure of the sentence. The sentence is expressing a hypothetical situation in the future, so the present simple is used to refer to a future event that is likely to happen.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    4. If I _____ this exercise, I won't get in trouble.

      Don't finish

    • B.

      Won't finish

    • C.

      Didn't finish

    • D.

      Wouldn't finish

    Correct Answer
    A. Don't finish
    Explanation
    If I don't finish this exercise, I won't get in trouble. This sentence is using the first conditional structure, which is used to talk about a possible future condition and its probable result. In this case, the condition is not finishing the exercise, and the result is not getting in trouble. The verb "don't finish" is the correct choice because it matches the present tense of the sentence and expresses a possible action in the future.

    D. Would keep

      Live

    • B.

      Will live

    • C.

      Lived

    • D.

      Would live

    Correct Answer
    C. Lived
    Explanation
    If the person is talking about a hypothetical situation of living on the moon, they would use the past tense "lived." This suggests that the person is not currently living on the moon, but if they were to do so in the past, they would wear different clothes.

    Rate this question:

  • 7.

      Are

      Will be

    • C.

      Were

    • D.

      Would be

    Correct Answer
    B. Will be
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "will be". This is because the sentence is talking about a future event - getting the best grades in the class - and the verb "will be" is used to express future actions or states. Therefore, it is the most appropriate choice to indicate that the parents' happiness will occur in the future when the speaker achieves the best grades.

      Brought

    • D.

      Would bring

    Correct Answer
    C. Brought
    Explanation

      Expired

    • D.

      Would expire

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "expires" because it is in the present simple tense, which is used to talk about general truths or future events that are scheduled or planned. In this context, the speaker is referring to a future event where their password will no longer be valid, indicating that it will expire.
