    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    I _________ (hurt) my arm yesterday.

    Correct Answer
    hurt
    Hurt
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "hurt, Hurt" because the verb "hurt" is used in both the past simple and past participle forms to indicate an injury to the arm that occurred yesterday. The lowercase "hurt" represents the past simple form, while the capitalized "Hurt" represents the past participle form.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    I _________ (look) for something in the cabinets of the kitchen.

    Correct Answer
    was looking
    Was looking
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was looking" and "Was looking". Both options use the past continuous tense to describe an ongoing action in the past. This tense is used when we want to emphasize that the action was happening at a specific point in the past. In this case, the person is describing their past activity of searching for something in the kitchen cabinets.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    I ___________ (stand) on a chair, and

    Correct Answer
    stood
    was standing
    Was standing
    Stood
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "stood, was standing, Was standing, Stood." In this sentence, the speaker is describing an action in the past. The verb "stand" can be used in both the simple past tense ("stood") and the past continuous tense ("was standing"). Additionally, the past continuous tense can be formed using "was" or "were" + the present participle of the verb ("Was standing"). Therefore, all four options are correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    I _________ (fall) off the chair.

    Correct Answer
    fell
    Fell
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "fell, Fell." The verb "fell" is the past tense of "fall," and it is used to describe an action that happened in the past. In this sentence, the speaker is describing an incident where they fell off the chair. The capitalization of "Fell" indicates that it is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Last Sunday, Lee __________ (drive) in the country, and

    Correct Answer
    was driving
    Was driving
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was driving" because the sentence is describing an action that was happening in the past. The past continuous tense "was driving" is used to indicate that Lee was in the process of driving at that specific time. "Was driving" is also a valid answer because it is the same tense and conveys the same meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    He __________ (not notice) a dog in the middle of the road.

    Correct Answer
    didn't notice
    did not notice
    Didn't notice
    Did not notice
    didn´t notice
    Didn´t notice
    Explanation
    The correct answer options for this question are all variations of "didn't notice" and "did not notice." These options are correct because they use the negative form of the verb "notice" (i.e., "didn't" or "did not") to indicate that the subject did not observe or become aware of the dog in the middle of the road. The variations in capitalization and punctuation do not affect the correctness of the answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Luckily, he ____________ (stop) his car in time, so

    Correct Answer
    stopped
    Stopped
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "stopped" because it is the past tense form of the verb "stop" and matches the subject "he" in the sentence. The word "Stopped" is also correct because it is the past participle form of the verb "stop" and can be used in certain contexts, such as in passive voice constructions. Both forms are grammatically correct and can be used interchangeably depending on the context of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    He ________ (not hit) it.

    Correct Answer
    didn't hit
    Didn't hit
    didn´t hit
    Didn´t hit
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "didn't hit" or "Didn't hit" or "didn´t hit" or "Didn´t hit". This is the negative form of the past tense of the verb "hit". It is used to indicate that someone did not perform the action of hitting something in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    The boy was climbing a tree when he fell down.

    Correct Answer
    When he fell down, the boy was climbing a tree.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "When he fell down, the boy was climbing a tree." This answer correctly rearranges the sentence to indicate that the boy was in the process of climbing a tree when he fell down. The phrase "when he fell down" is placed at the beginning of the sentence to emphasize the cause and effect relationship between the two actions.

    Rate this question:

The repetition of the question indicates a concern for the specific activity of lifting as a potential cause for the back injury.

    B is asking A if they were wearing gloves when they cut their thumb in the garden. This question is asking about a specific detail that could potentially explain how the accident happened. The repetition of "were you wearing gloves" emphasizes the importance of this detail and suggests that wearing gloves could have prevented the injury.

    Explanation
    The question is asking whether Jeff traveled to England by himself. The answer "himself" indicates that Jeff did indeed travel alone. However, the response from person B contradicts this by stating that Jeff went with his parents. Therefore, the correct answer is not "himself" as it does not align with the information given in the conversation.
