Questions and Answers

    いれる (いれます)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "いれた." The verb "いれる" means "to put in" or "to insert." In this case, the past tense form of the verb is being asked for. By adding the past tense suffix "た" to the verb stem "いれ," we get "いれた," which means "put in" or "inserted" in the past tense.
