    The word "break" is the base form of the verb, while "broke" is the past tense form. The answer "broken" is the past participle form of the verb "break."

    The word "saw" is the past tense of the verb "see." In this sentence, the word "seen" is the past participle form of the verb "see."

    • D.

      Writing

    Correct Answer
    A. Written
    Explanation
    The word "write" is in the past tense, and the word "written" is also in the past tense. "Write" and "written" are forms of the same verb, with "write" being the base form and "written" being the past participle form. Therefore, "written" is the correct answer as it matches the tense of the word "write" in the sentence.

    Correct Answer
    A. Slept
    Explanation
    The word "slept" is the past tense form of the verb "sleep". In the given sentence, "sleep" is already in the past tense, so we need to use the past tense form of the verb to maintain consistency. Therefore, "slept" is the correct answer.

    • D.

      Talked

    Correct Answer
    B. Taken

      Lost

    Correct Answer
    D. Lost
    Explanation
    The word "lose" is the base form of the verb, while "lost" is the past tense form. The blank space requires a word that is in the past tense to maintain grammatical consistency. "Lost" is the correct answer as it fits the context of the sentence and completes the sentence structure.
