  • 2. 

    The bank  ________ (to close) at four o'clock.

    Explanation
    The given sentence is in the present tense and is referring to a habitual action. The word "closes" is the correct answer because it is the present tense form of the verb "to close" and agrees with the subject "bank". This indicates that the bank regularly closes at four o'clock.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    My life is so boring.   I just  ________ (to watch) TV every night.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "watch" because it matches the verb tense in the sentence. The sentence is in the present simple tense and "watch" is the base form of the verb that agrees with the subject "I".

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    I ______________ (not to have) a penny.

    Explanation
    The correct answer for this question is "do not have" or "don't have" because both phrases are the negative forms of the verb "to have" in the present tense. The sentence is expressing the lack of possession of a penny, so it requires the negative form of the verb.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    It  ________ (to rain) almost every day in Vancouver.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "rains" because the sentence is in the present tense and "rains" is the correct form of the verb "to rain" for the third person singular subject "it".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    My mother  ________ (to eat) eggs for breakfast every morning.

    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    John  ________ (to study) very hard in class, but I don't think he'll pass the course.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "studies" because the sentence is in the present tense and refers to John's current actions. "Studies" is the correct form of the verb "to study" for the third person singular subject "John." The phrase "but I don't think he'll pass the course" suggests that despite John's efforts, the speaker has doubts about his ability to succeed.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    I  ________ (to work) in a bank.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "work" because it is the base form of the verb "to work" and agrees with the subject "I" in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    He _______________(not to walk) on water.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "does not walk" or "doesn't walk" because the sentence is in the present tense and the negative form of the verb "to walk" is used. The contraction "doesn't" is a shortened form of "does not" and is commonly used in informal speech and writing. Therefore, both options convey the same meaning that the person is unable to walk on water.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    We  ________ (to travel) to Spain every summer.

    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    _________________ (you / to stay) at that hotel?

    Explanation
    The given correct answer "Do you stay" is the correct form of the question in the present tense. It is asking about a habitual or regular action, inquiring if the person stays at that hotel regularly or frequently. The verb "do" is used to form questions in the present simple tense, and "you stay" is the base form of the verb in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    My best friend  ________ (to write) to me every week.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "writes" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "my best friend" is a third person singular noun. In the present tense, the verb "write" needs to be conjugated as "writes" for third person singular subjects.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    She  ____________ (to go) to the office.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "goes". In this sentence, the subject "she" is singular, so the verb should also be in the singular form. "Goes" is the correct present tense form of the verb "to go" for the third person singular subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    _______________ (he / to take) his car to work?

    Explanation
    The given answer "Does he take" is correct because it follows the correct form of the question in the present simple tense. In English, when asking a question in the present simple tense, we use the auxiliary verb "do" or "does" followed by the base form of the main verb. In this case, the main verb is "take" and since the subject is "he," we use the auxiliary verb "does" to form the question. Therefore, "Does he take" is the correct question form.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    John  ________________ (not to need) new boots this winter.

    Explanation
    The correct answer for this question is "does not need" or "doesn't need" because it is referring to John's lack of necessity for new boots this winter. The phrase "does not need" and "doesn't need" both convey the same meaning of John not requiring new boots. The use of the negative form "does not" or "doesn't" indicates the absence of the need, while "need" emphasizes the action of requiring something.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    He  ____________ (to walk) to work every morning.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "walks" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "he" requires the verb to be conjugated in the third person singular form. Therefore, "walks" is the correct form of the verb "to walk" to match the subject "he" in the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    I  ___________ (to smoke) cigars.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "smoke" because it is the base form of the verb "to smoke" which is used to describe the action of smoking cigars.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    My father  _____________ (to read) the newspaper every morning.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "reads" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "my father" is singular. In the present tense, when the subject is singular, we add an -s to the base form of the verb. Therefore, "reads" is the correct form of the verb "to read" to use in this sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    She  _______________ (not to like) to work in an office.

    Explanation
    The correct answer for this question is "does not like" or "doesn't like." Both phrases indicate the negative form of liking to work in an office. The use of "does not" or "doesn't" with the verb "like" shows the absence of preference or enjoyment for working in an office.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    What did the thieves steal in the bank last week?

    • A.

      The thieves steal one thousand millon dollars

    • B.

      The thieves stole one thousand millon dollars

    • C.

      The thieves did stole one thousand millon dollars

    • D.

      The thieves stolen one thousand millon dollars

    Correct Answer
    B. The thieves stole one thousand millon dollars
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The thieves stole one thousand million dollars." The sentence is in the past tense and uses the correct verb form "stole" to indicate that the thieves took the money from the bank. The phrase "one thousand million dollars" specifies the amount that was stolen.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    How many subjects did you attend last academic year?

    • A.

      I attended ten subjects last academic year

    • B.

      I attend ten subjects last academic year

    • C.

      I did attended ten subjects last academic year

    • D.

      I not attended ten subjects last academic year

    Correct Answer
    A. I attended ten subjects last academic year
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I attended ten subjects last academic year." This answer is correct because it uses the past tense verb "attended" to indicate that the subjects were attended in the past academic year. The other options either use incorrect verb forms or negative statements that do not accurately convey attending ten subjects.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Which auxiliary verb do we use in simple past tense?

    • A.

      Do

    • B.

      Does

    • C.

      Did

    Correct Answer
    C. Did
    Explanation
    In simple past tense, we use the auxiliary verb "did." This is because "did" is the past tense form of the verb "do." It is used to form questions and negative sentences in the past tense. For example, "Did you go to the store?" or "I did not eat breakfast."

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    What is the structure to do negative sentences in simple past tense?

    • A.

      S + Aux + V + C

    • B.

      S + Aux + V + C + ?

    • C.

      S + Aux + not + V + C

    Correct Answer
    C. S + Aux + not + V + C
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "S + Aux + not + V + C". In negative sentences in simple past tense, we use the auxiliary verb "did" (past tense of "do") followed by "not" and the base form of the main verb. This structure is used to indicate that an action did not happen in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    What is the structure to do interrogative sentences in simple past tense?

    • A.

      S + Aux + V + C + ?

    • B.

      Aux + S + V + C + ?

    • C.

      S + Aux + V + C

    Correct Answer
    B. Aux + S + V + C + ?
    Explanation
    The correct structure to form interrogative sentences in simple past tense is "Aux + S + V + C + ?". In this structure, the auxiliary verb (such as "did") is placed before the subject (S), followed by the main verb (V), complement (C), and a question mark at the end. This structure is used to ask questions about past actions or events.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    The past tense of the verb To Be has two forms

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The past tense of the verb "To Be" does indeed have two forms: "was" and "were." "Was" is used for singular subjects (I, he, she, it), while "were" is used for plural subjects (we, you, they).

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    To do negative  and interrogative sentences  in past tense we use the auxiliary verb does

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In past tense, negative and interrogative sentences are formed using the auxiliary verb "did" instead of "does". "Does" is used in present tense for negative and interrogative sentences. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    The structure to do an affirmative sentence in simple past tense is  S + V in past + C

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that in simple past tense, an affirmative sentence follows the structure of subject + verb in the past + complement. This means that when we want to express an action that happened in the past and is completed, we use the past form of the verb. Therefore, the structure S + V in past + C is the correct way to form an affirmative sentence in simple past tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    The masons -------------- build the new building in front of the bank. (Negative sentence in past tense)

    Correct Answer
    did not
    Explanation
    The sentence is in the negative form in the past tense. To express this, we use the auxiliary verb "did" followed by "not" and the base form of the main verb "build". This construction is used to indicate that the action of building the new building in front of the bank was not performed by the masons.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    George ....................  his wife talking about his troubles last night.  (past tense of to bore)

    Correct Answer
    bored
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "bored." In this sentence, the verb "to bore" is used in the past tense. The subject, George, is the one who experienced the action of being bored. Therefore, the correct past tense form of "to bore" is "bored."

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    The pronunciation of the expression "used to" is [ use to ]

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The pronunciation of the expression "used to" is [ use to ]. This means that when saying the phrase "used to," the "ed" at the end of "used" is pronounced as a separate syllable, and the "d" sound is pronounced as a "t" sound.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    When we want to use the expression "used to" in negative form we must use the auxiliary verb -----------plus the negative word "not".

    Correct Answer
    did
    Explanation
    When we want to use the expression "used to" in negative form, we must use the auxiliary verb "did" plus the negative word "not". This is because "did" is the past tense of the auxiliary verb "do" and is used to form negative sentences in the past tense. Therefore, when we want to express that something was not done in the past, we use "did not" followed by the base form of the main verb.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. fly
    Explanation

    • D.

      D. writes

    Correct Answer
    C. C. is writing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is C. is writing. The use of the present continuous tense "is writing" suggests that Justin is currently in the process of writing a book about his adventure in Tibet. This implies that he has not finished writing the book yet and is still actively engaged in the writing process. The phrase "when he is finished" further supports this interpretation, indicating that the action of writing is ongoing and not yet completed.

    • D.

      D. writing

    Correct Answer
    B. B. have written
    Explanation
    The correct answer is B. have written. This is because the sentence is referring to an action that started in the past (writing the letters) and continues up until the present moment (not receiving a reply). The present perfect tense "have written" is used to indicate this ongoing action. The other options (A. am writing, C. write, D. writing) do not convey the same sense of continuity and ongoing action.
