    If I had studied harder, I ________ (pass) the exam.

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "would have passed". This is because the sentence is in the past unreal condition, indicating a hypothetical situation.

By using "would have passed", it implies that if they had studied harder, the result would have been different, and they would have passed the exam.

This is supported by the use of the word "would" which suggests a hypothetical situation. Therefore, if the person spoke louder in the past, their classmates would have understood them.

The correct form in this case is "would have had", which is the past perfect form of "have".

    I would get a new job if I ________ (be) you.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "were." This is because the sentence is in the subjunctive mood, indicating a hypothetical or unreal situation.

The use of "had been" in the conditional clause suggests that the speaker was not actually born in a different country, but is imagining a different outcome.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    If she ________ (not go) to the party, I will be very upset.

    Explanation

  • 13. 

    If Sam ________ (drive) too fast, he will have an accident.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "drives" because it is the correct form of the verb to match the subject "Sam." The sentence is in the present tense, so the verb needs to be in the present tense as well. Additionally, the use of "will have" indicates a future consequence, so the verb "drives" is the appropriate choice.

    Explanation

In this case, the subjunctive form "were" is used instead of "was" to indicate that it is not a statement of fact but a hypothetical condition.
