Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Eat

    Explanation
    The verb "eat" is the base form, "ate" is the past simple form, and "eaten" is the past participle form. In this case, "ate" is the correct past simple form of "eat," while "eaten" is the correct past participle form.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    think

    Explanation
    The given answer "thought - thought" suggests that the word "think" in its past tense form is "thought". This is a correct answer because in English, the past tense of "think" is indeed "thought".

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    write

    Explanation
    This answer is correct because "wrote" is the past tense form of the verb "write" and "written" is the past participle form. The past tense is used to indicate an action that happened in the past, while the past participle is used in compound tenses or as an adjective. Therefore, "wrote" is the correct form to use when referring to a specific past action, and "written" is the correct form to use when forming compound tenses or describing something as having been written.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    cut

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "cut - cut". This answer suggests that the word "cut" is repeated, indicating that something was physically severed or divided. The repetition emphasizes the action of cutting, reinforcing the idea that something has been separated or removed.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    lose

    Explanation
    The word "lose" is the base form of the verb, while "lost" is the past tense and past participle form. In this case, "lost" is used in both the past tense and past participle forms, which is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    choose

    Explanation
    The verb "choose" is an irregular verb, which means it does not follow the regular pattern of adding "-ed" to form the past tense and past participle. Instead, it changes to "chose" in the past tense and "chosen" in the past participle form.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    speak

    Explanation
    The word "speak" is the base form of the verb. When we talk about the past tense, we use "spoke." Similarly, when we talk about the past participle form, we use "spoken." So, "spoke - spoken" is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    tell

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "told - told" because "told" is the past tense and past participle form of the verb "tell." Therefore, in this case, the verb "tell" should be conjugated in the past tense for both the simple past and past participle forms.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    come

    Explanation
    The given answer suggests that the correct form of the verb "come" in the past tense is "came," while the correct form in the present tense is "come."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    meet

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "met - met" because it is the correct past tense form of the verb "meet." In this case, "met" is used for both the present and past tense, so there is no change in the verb form.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    see

    Explanation
    The verb "see" is irregular, and its past tense form is "saw" and the past participle form is "seen".

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    have

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had - had" because it is the correct past tense form of the verb "have". The first "had" is the past tense form of "have" used for the subject of the sentence, and the second "had" is the past participle form of "have" used in the past perfect tense. This tense is used to indicate an action that was completed before another past action or time in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    fall

  • 14. 

    go

    Explanation
    The verb "go" is irregular in its past tense forms. The base form is "go", the past tense form is "went", and the past participle form is "gone". So, the correct answer is "went - gone" because "went" is the past tense form of "go" and "gone" is the past participle form.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    sleep

  • 16. 

    break

    Explanation
    The word "broke" is the past tense form of the verb "break," while "broken" is the past participle form. "Broke" is used to describe an action that happened in the past, while "broken" is used to describe the result of that action. For example, "I broke my phone" means that the action of breaking the phone happened in the past, while "My phone is broken" means that the phone is currently in a state of being broken as a result of that action.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    hear

    Explanation
    The word "hear" is the base form of the verb, while "heard" is the past tense and past participle form. In this case, the correct answer is "heard - heard" because it matches the correct past tense and past participle form of the verb "hear".

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    buy

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "bought - bought" because the word "buy" is the base form of the verb, and when it is used in the past tense, it becomes "bought." The past participle form of the verb "buy" is also "bought." Therefore, the correct answer is "bought - bought."

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    be

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was/were - been." This is because "was" and "were" are the past tense forms of the verb "to be," while "been" is the past participle form. The past participle form is used in combination with "have" or "had" to form the present perfect and past perfect tenses.
