Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If it (snow) ________ this weekend, we will go skiing near Lake Toba. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "snows" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "it" refers to the weather condition of snowing. Therefore, the verb should be in the present tense as well.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    I (watch) ________ a football match on TV when the electricity went out.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was watching" because the sentence is in the past continuous tense. The verb "watch" is used in its past continuous form "was watching" to indicate an ongoing action in the past. The interruption of the electricity going out further suggests that the action of watching the football match was in progress at that time.

    • A.

      Has talked

    • B.

      Had talked

    Correct Answer
    B. Had talked
    Explanation
    The use of the past perfect tense "had talked" indicates that John had already completed the action of talking with everyone at the party before the end of the night. This implies that the conversations took place earlier in the evening and were finished by the time the night ended.

    You're working late again?! ___________ overtime every day this week!

    • B.

      You'd worked

    Correct Answer
    A. You've worked
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "You've worked." This is because the phrase "You've worked" is the contraction of "You have worked," which is the correct verb tense to use in this sentence. The sentence is expressing surprise or frustration at the person's consistent overtime work throughout the week.

    A: I can't hear the television! B: I (turn) ________ it up so you can hear it.

    Correct Answer
    will turn

    B suggests that they will turn up the volume on the television so that A can hear it. The correct answer is "will turn" because it is the future tense form of the verb "turn" that matches the context of B's statement.

    Correct Answer
    B. I'd never had
    Explanation

      They'd locked

    Correct Answer
    B. They'd locked

    By the time I got to the office, the meeting  ___________without me.

      Has already begun

    • B.

      Had already begun

    Correct Answer
    B. Had already begun
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had already begun" because the use of the past perfect tense ("had begun") indicates that the action of the meeting starting occurred before another past action (the speaker getting to the office). This suggests that the meeting started before the speaker arrived at the office.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    When you (arrive) ________ in Solo, call my friend Nadia.

    Correct Answer
