    • B.

      Boil

    • C.

      Will boil

    Correct Answer
    A. Boils
    Explanation
    When water is heated to 100°C, it reaches its boiling point. At this temperature, the water undergoes a phase change from a liquid to a gas, resulting in the formation of bubbles and the release of steam. Therefore, the correct answer is "boils."

      Doesn't invite

    • C.

      Will invite

    Correct Answer
    A. Invites
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "invites." The sentence is expressing a condition using the word "unless," which means that the speaker will not go to the party unless a specific condition is met. In this case, the condition is that she invites the speaker. Therefore, the correct verb form is "invites."

    • C.

      Will be ... keep

    Correct Answer
    C. Will be ... keep
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "will be ... keep." The sentence is in future tense, as indicated by the use of "will." The phrase "grateful if you" suggests a conditional statement, where the speaker is expressing gratitude if the listener does something. The verb "keep" is used to indicate that the listener should remember or retain what the speaker said. Therefore, the correct answer is "will be ... keep," indicating that the speaker will be grateful if the listener keeps what was said to themselves.

    Correct Answer
    B. Gets ... won't arrive
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "gets ... won't arrive." This is because the word "unless" indicates a condition that needs to be fulfilled for the second part of the sentence to happen. In this case, the condition is the weather getting better. So, if the weather gets better, the speaker won't arrive.

    • C.

      Do you feel

    Correct Answer
    A. Would you feel
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would you feel". This is because the question is asking about a hypothetical situation in which the person sees a bear. The phrase "would you feel" is used to inquire about someone's emotions or reactions in a hypothetical scenario.

    • A.

      Will be

    • B.

      Am

    • C.

      Would be

    Correct Answer
    B. Am
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "am." The sentence is in the present tense, and the phrase "If this is a good article" suggests a hypothetical situation. In this case, the speaker is expressing their desire or intention to become a Formula One driver if the article is indeed good. Therefore, the correct verb form to use is "am," which is the first person singular present tense of the verb "to be."

    • C.

      Will sell ... are

    Correct Answer
    A. Won't sell ... are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "won't sell ... are". This answer is correct because it follows the rule that the speaker will not sell alcohol unless the person is over 18 years old. The use of "won't sell" indicates a refusal to sell, and "are" indicates that the person is indeed over 18.

    Rate this question:

  • 9.

    • B.

      Is ... bought

    • C.

      Was ... would buy

    Correct Answer
    C. Was ... would buy
    Explanation
    This sentence is written in the conditional tense, expressing a hypothetical situation. The word "if" indicates that the sentence is discussing a condition that may or may not be true. The correct answer is "was ... would buy" because it correctly matches the past tense of "if it was your birthday" with the conditional tense of "I would buy you a present." This implies that the speaker is referring to a past event and stating that if it had been the listener's birthday, they would have bought them a present.

    • A.

      Improves ... will go

    • C.

      Doesn't improve ... will go

    Correct Answer
    A. improves ... won't go
    Explanation
    If she improves her results, it means that she has made progress or achieved better outcomes. In this context, "won't go" implies that she will not attend the concert. Therefore, the correct answer is "improves...won't go." This suggests that if she does not improve her results, she will go to the concert, but if she does improve, she will not go.

    I wish I _________________________ (learn) English when I was younger

    Correct Answer

The verb "wish" is used to express a desire for something that did not happen. The past perfect form "had learned" or "had learnt" is used to show that the action of learning English did not occur in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    I wish I _________________________  (study) more for this quiz!

    Correct Answer
    had studied
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had studied" because the sentence is in the past tense and expresses a regret or wish about a past action. The phrase "I wish" indicates that the speaker is expressing a desire for something different to have happened in the past. In this case, the speaker wishes they had studied more for the quiz, implying that they did not study enough and are now regretting it.

    Correct Answer
    would not snore, wouldn't snore
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would not snore, wouldn't snore" because the sentence expresses a hypothetical wish about Tom's snoring habit.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was, were" because the sentence is expressing a wish or a hypothetical situation in the present. In English, when expressing a wish or a hypothetical situation in the present, we use "was" for singular subjects and "were" for plural subjects. In this case, "it" is a singular subject, so we use "was."

  • 17. 

    If only I _________________________ (drink) so much beer last night

    Correct Answer
    hadn't drunk, had not drunk
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "hadn't drunk, had not drunk" because the sentence is in the past unreal conditional form. The use of "hadn't drunk" and "had not drunk" indicates that the speaker regrets drinking too much beer the night before. The past perfect tense "hadn't drunk" is used in the if-clause, while the simple past tense "had not drunk" is used in the result clause.
