    Ten people in my class got it at the end of March and then I (3) ……………………… coughing. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "started." This is because the sentence mentions that ten people in the class got something at the end of March, and then the speaker began coughing. The word "started" indicates the beginning of an action or event, which fits the context of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    And I knew that I (4) ……………………… it too! 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had" because it is the past tense form of the verb "have" and matches the tense of the sentence. The phrase "and I knew that I" indicates that the speaker is referring to a past action or event. Therefore, "had" is the appropriate verb choice to indicate that the speaker possessed or experienced something in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I (5) ……………………… to the doctor, 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "went" because it is the past tense form of the verb "go." In the given sentence, the subject "I" is the one who performed the action of going to the doctor. Therefore, "went" is the appropriate verb choice to indicate that action in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    But he (6) ……………………… give me anything. He said I just had to rest.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "didn't, did not". In the given sentence, the speaker is expressing that someone did not give them anything. Both "didn't" and "did not" are contractions of the same phrase, indicating the negative past tense.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Have, have, yet." The first blank should be filled with "Have" to maintain parallelism with the verb tense used in the previous sentence ("I've already watched"). The second blank should be filled with "have" again to form the question "Have you seen it?" Lastly, the word "yet" is used to indicate that the action of watching the film has not happened at the time of writing the letter.
