The past continuous tense "were you doing" is used to describe an ongoing action in the past, which is appropriate in this context.

The past tense form "delayed" is used to indicate that the flights were delayed earlier today due to severe thunderstorms.

    • D.

      Were supposed to go

    Correct Answer
    D. Were supposed to go
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "were supposed to go". This is because the sentence is in the past tense and the phrase "but the weather was awful, so we stayed home" indicates that the action of going to the soccer game did not happen. "Were supposed to go" implies that there was an intention or plan to go to the soccer game, but it did not actually occur due to the bad weather.

    Correct Answer

    • A.

      Is taking off

    • B.

      Has taken off

    • C.

      Would have taken off

    • D.

      Would take off

    Correct Answer
    C. Would have taken off
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would have taken off". This is because the sentence is in the past unreal conditional form, indicating a hypothetical situation in the past. The use of "had been" suggests that Dennis was not in the right place at the right time, and therefore his career did not actually take off. The phrase "would have taken off" expresses the idea that if the hypothetical condition had been met (i.e., if Dennis had been in the right place at the right time), his career would have experienced significant growth or success.

  • 24. 

    24. Many voters wish the senator ______ for re-lection, but he has announced his intention to retire from politics

    • A.

      Would run

    • B.

      Is running

    • C.

      Will run

    • D.

      Runs

    Correct Answer
    A. Would run
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would run." This is because the phrase "wish the senator" suggests that the voters desire the senator to run for re-election, but the senator has already announced his intention to retire. "Would run" is the conditional form of the verb "run" and indicates a hypothetical or unreal situation, which aligns with the voters' wishes that are unlikely to come true.

      To worry

    • C.

      Worrying

    • D.

      Be worrying

    Correct Answer
    D. Be worrying
    Explanation
    When growing up we're told there are certain things that are simply not worth worrying about. The phrase "not worth worrying about" suggests that the verb form used should be in the present tense and in the base form. Among the options given, "be worrying" is the only one that fits this criteria. "Be worrying" is in the present continuous tense and does not match the intended meaning of the sentence. Therefore, the correct answer is "be worrying".

      Discouraged

    • D.

      Have been discouraged

    Correct Answer
    B. Have discouraged
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have discouraged". In this sentence, the phrase "I ought to" indicates that the speaker is talking about a past decision. The verb "discouraged" needs to be in the past tense to match the past tense of the sentence. The phrase "have discouraged" is the correct past tense form of the verb "discourage" in this context.

The other options ("Have met", "met", "had met") are past tense forms of the verb and do not fit the context of the question.

    B. Each other
    Explanation
    Since the sentence mentions that the speaker and their best friend live in different cities, it implies that they are referring to communication between the two of them. The phrase "call each other" is the correct choice as it conveys the reciprocal action of both individuals calling one another.
