    Correct Answer
    C. Gave - wouldn't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "gave - wouldn't". This is because the sentence is in the conditional form, expressing a hypothetical situation. The verb "gave" is in the past tense, indicating a past action that did not happen. The verb "wouldn't" is the negative form of "would", indicating that if the hypothetical action of giving had occurred, there would be no money left.

    Correct Answer
    B. Take - will
    Explanation

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "call - think."

    Correct Answer
    D. Would be
    Explanation
    By using the phrase "If you spoke less and listened more," the question sets up a hypothetical scenario. The phrase "would be" is used to indicate the conditional nature of the statement. It suggests that if someone were to speak less and listen more, they would become more aware of what people truly felt. The use of "would be" in this context implies a hypothetical outcome or result based on a certain condition being met.

    • D.

      Being - smoking

    Correct Answer
    B. Be - smoke
    Explanation
    If you smoke a lot, you won't be good at sports. The verb "be" is used to indicate a state or condition, and in this case, it implies that if you engage in smoking, it will negatively affect your ability to excel in sports. The verb "smoke" is the appropriate action verb to complement the subject "you" in this context.

    • D.

      Have- when

    Correct Answer
    B. Have- if
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have- if." This is because the sentence expresses a hypothetical condition. It suggests that if it had rained, the person would have gotten wet. The word "if" is used to introduce the conditional clause, and "have" is the correct verb form to use in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

      To- if

    A. For- if
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "for- if" because it correctly completes the sentence in a logical and grammatically correct manner. The sentence implies that if they don't leave now, they will be late for lunch. Therefore, the word "for" is used to indicate the purpose or reason for leaving, and "if" is used to introduce the conditional clause.

      Have- had

    Correct Answer
    C. Had- have
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had- have". This is because the sentence is in the past unreal conditional form, indicating a hypothetical situation in the past. The first blank should be filled with "had" to indicate the past tense, and the second blank should be filled with "have" to indicate the present tense. This means that if she had worked harder in the past, she would have passed the test in the present.
