    • C.

      Drive

    Correct Answer
    B. Flew
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "flew" because the verb "fly" is irregular in the past tense. The past tense of "fly" is "flew," not "flied" or "drive." Therefore, the correct sentence would be "This is the plane the pilot is going to fly. This is the plane that he flew."

    • C.

      Grewed

    Correct Answer
    A. Grew
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "grew" because it is the past tense form of the verb "grow." Since the sentence is referring to an action that has already happened (the farmer is going to grow corn), the past tense is appropriate. "Growed" and "grewed" are not valid past tense forms of the verb "grow."
