    Correct Answer
    B. I hadn't stayed up late last night.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I hadn't stayed up late last night." This answer is correct because it uses the correct verb tense, "hadn't," to indicate that the speaker did not stay up late the previous night. The other options use incorrect verb forms such as "didn't stayed" or "wasn't stayed," which do not match the proper grammar.

    • D.

      It soon rains.

    Correct Answer
    B. It would rain soon.
    Explanation
    The phrase "I wish" indicates a desire or hope for something that is not currently true. In this case, the speaker likes the rain and is expressing their wish for it to rain soon. The phrase "it would rain soon" suggests a hypothetical or conditional statement, indicating that the speaker is hoping for rain in the near future.

      I had had

    • D.

      I have have

    Correct Answer
    B. I had
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I had" because the phrase "I wish" is used to express a desire for something that is not currently true or possible. In this case, the speaker is expressing a wish for more money, indicating that they do not currently have a lot of money. Using the past tense "I had" implies that the speaker had more money in the past but no longer does.

    Correct Answer
    A. I were
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I were." In this sentence, the speaker is expressing a hypothetical or unreal condition. The use of "were" instead of "was" indicates that the speaker is talking about a situation that is contrary to reality. This is known as the subjunctive mood, which is used to express wishes, desires, or hypothetical situations.

    Correct Answer
    C. It would stop raining.
    Explanation
    The sentence "I hate the rain. I wish it would stop raining." expresses a hypothetical or unreal situation in the present. The verb "wish" is followed by the verb "would" to indicate a desire for something to happen that is not currently true. Therefore, "it would stop raining" is the correct answer as it reflects the speaker's wish for the rain to cease.
