    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The given question is in the form of a conditional statement, indicating a hypothetical situation. The phrase "If you work hard" suggests that the action of working hard will lead to a specific outcome. In this case, the outcome is passing the exam.

    The given sentence is a conditional statement in the second conditional form. It suggests a hypothetical situation where a dinosaur enters the class.

Therefore, if a dinosaur came into the class, the speaker would take it to the canteen.

    • D.

      Ate / will get

    Correct Answer
    B. Eat / will get
    Explanation
    If I eat too many short eats, I will get fat. This sentence is written in the present simple tense for the first part ("If I eat") to indicate a habitual action. The second part of the sentence is written in the future simple tense ("I will get") to indicate a future consequence of the action. Therefore, the correct answer is "eat / will get."

    The correct answer is "don't play / will be". This is because the sentence is in the conditional form, expressing a hypothetical situation. The first part of the sentence "If we don't play cricket tomorrow" sets up the condition, and the second part "I will be bored" indicates the result or consequence of that condition.

    Correct Answer
    A. Drink / will feel
    Explanation
