      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. Had eaten

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. Had you read

      Option 3

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. Had gone
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had gone". This is because the sentence is in the past perfect tense, indicating an action that occurred before another past action. In this case, the action of our friends leaving (go) happened before we arrived (got there). Therefore, "had gone" is the appropriate verb form to use in this context.

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    B. Had you been drinking
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had you been drinking." This is because the question is asking about an action in progress at a specific point in the past. The past perfect continuous tense is used to describe an action that started before a certain point in the past and was still ongoing at that point. In this case, the question is asking about drinking before the policeman stopped you, indicating an action in progress.

    • C.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    B. Had been baking
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had been baking". This is because the speaker is explaining why they were covered in flour, indicating a past action. The continuous form "had been baking" suggests that the speaker was in the process of baking something before they became covered in flour.
