Past Simple 3 Questions - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Where ________ yesterday? (you be)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "were you." This is the correct subject-verb order for forming a question in the past tense. In English, when asking a question in the past tense, the verb "be" is inverted with the subject pronoun "you," resulting in "were you."

    ________ Tom yesterday? (you meet)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Did you meet." This is because the question is asking about a past event ("yesterday"), so the correct verb form to use is the past tense. Additionally, the subject of the question is "you," so the correct question form is "Did you meet."

  • 3. 

    ________ to the cinema last week? (she go)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Did she go" because the question is in the past tense and is asking about an action that happened last week. The auxiliary verb "did" is used to form questions in the past tense, and "she go" is the correct form of the verb "go" in the past tense for the subject "she".

    ________ sick yesterday? (She be)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Was she." This is the correct question form of the sentence "She was sick yesterday." In English, when using the verb "to be" in the past tense, we invert the subject and the verb to form a question. Therefore, the correct structure is "Was she sick yesterday?"

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What ________ at the weekend? (they do)

    Explanation
    The given answer "did they do" is the correct answer because it correctly completes the question by using the past tense auxiliary verb "did" followed by the subject "they" and the base form of the main verb "do." This structure is used in English to form questions in the past simple tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    ________ on time for school this morning? (they, be)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Were they." The question is asking about the subject "they" and whether or not they were on time for school this morning. The word "were" is the correct form of the verb "to be" in the past tense for the subject "they."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    ________ the door? (we, lock)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Did we lock." This is the correct answer because it correctly forms a question using the subject "we" and the verb "lock" in the past tense. The question is asking whether or not the action of locking the door was performed by "we."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Where ________ yesterday? I've forgotten. (we, be)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "were we". This is the correct form of the question in past tense. The subject "we" is followed by the auxiliary verb "were" in order to form a question.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Where ________ last night? (you, go)

    Explanation
    The question is asking about the action of going last night. The correct answer, "Did you go," is in the past tense and is formed using the auxiliary verb "did" and the base form of the verb "go." This answer correctly follows the question structure and provides a grammatically correct response.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    ________ cycling at the weekend? (you, go)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Did you go" because the question is asking about someone's activity of cycling at the weekend. The question is in the past tense, so the correct form of the verb "go" is "went". However, since the question is in the form of a yes/no question, the auxiliary verb "did" is used to form the question. Therefore, the correct answer is "Did you go".
