    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Got / had graduated
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "got / had graduated". This is because the verb "got" is used in the past simple tense to indicate a completed action of receiving the certificate. The verb "had graduated" is used in the past perfect tense to indicate that the graduation occurred before the action of receiving the certificate.

      Had traveled / improved

    Correct Answer
    D. Had traveled / improved
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had traveled / improved". The use of the past perfect tense "had traveled" indicates that Shen traveled to England before the second action took place. The verb "improved" is in the past simple tense, indicating that his improvement in communication happened after he had traveled to England.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "I became thinner after I had started eating healthy food" implies that the person first started eating healthy food and then experienced weight loss. This suggests that they went on a diet and the change in their eating habits contributed to their weight loss. Therefore, the answer "True" is correct.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because it states that Brazil created the currency Real after the United States had already created the currency Dollar. This implies that the creation of the Dollar happened before the creation of the Real, indicating a chronological order of events.

    It`s correct to say that: The flowers had died because nobody watered them.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is not correct. It states that the flowers had died because nobody watered them. However, this is an assumption and may not necessarily be true. There could be other reasons for the flowers dying, such as lack of sunlight, disease, or improper soil conditions. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    What are the suitable answers for the question below: Why didn`t you give her the present?

    • A.

      Because she broke up with me when I bought it

    • B.

      Because she went to my house.

    • C.

      Because she had broken up with me before I talked to her

    • D.

      Because she had traveled

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. Because she had broken up with me before I talked to her
    D. Because she had traveled
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Because she had broken up with me before I talked to her" and "Because she had traveled." These answers suggest possible reasons for why the person did not give the present to her. It implies that the speaker had a negative experience with the recipient, such as a breakup, and also mentions her traveling, which could have made it difficult to give her the present.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    It`s not correct to say: I had felt sick after I ate that rotten fish.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true because the correct sentence structure should be "I felt sick after I ate that rotten fish." In this case, the past tense verb "felt" is used instead of "had felt" because the action of feeling sick occurred immediately after eating the rotten fish. Using "had felt" would imply that the feeling of sickness happened before eating the fish, which does not make sense in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Complete the sentence below: He _________ tired because he ___________ a lot. (be / work)

    Correct Answer
    was / had worked
    Was / Had worked
    WAS / HAD WORKED
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was / had worked". The verb "was" is used to indicate the past tense of "be" and shows that he was tired in the past. The verb "had worked" is the past perfect tense of "work" and indicates that he had completed the action of working before becoming tired. The capitalization of "WAS / HAD WORKED" is not necessary and is likely just a formatting error.
