This English grammar test about verb tenses consists of seventeen questions. Do you know how to use tenses correctly? Well, if you have learned about them, you might as well like to take this interesting quiz. Let's see if you can or not.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Simple Present (Affirmative) My friend _________ English and Math.

    • A.

      Studies

    • B.

      Study

    • C.

      Is study

    • D.

      Are study

    Correct Answer
    A. Studies
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Studies" because when using the simple present tense in the third person singular form (he/she/it), we add an -s to the base form of the verb. In this sentence, "my friend" refers to a third person singular subject, so we use "studies" instead of "study", "is study", or "are study".

    Simple Present (Affirmative) The dogs ________ in the garden.

    • A.

      Are sleep

    • B.

      Sleeps

    • C.

      Sleep

    • D.

      Are sleeping

    Correct Answer
    C. Sleep
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Sleep". In the simple present tense, when talking about a general truth or a habitual action, we use the base form of the verb. Since "dogs" is plural, we use the base form "sleep" without any additional endings.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Simple Present (Negative) My parents___________ TV.

    • A.

      Aren't waches

    • B.

      Don't watch

    • C.

      Doesn't watches

    • D.

      Isn't watches

    Correct Answer
    B. Don't watch
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Don't watch." This is because when using the simple present tense in the negative form, we use "don't" or "doesn't" before the base form of the verb. In this case, "watch" is the base form of the verb, and since the subject is "my parents," we use "don't" to show that they do not engage in the action of watching TV.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Simple Present(Affirmative) Ann __________ milk.

    • A.

      Don't drinks

    • B.

      Didn't drink

    • C.

      Won't drink

    • D.

      Doesn't drink

    Correct Answer
    D. Doesn't drink
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Doesn't drink" because in the simple present tense, when the subject is a third person singular pronoun (he, she, it), we add "s" or "es" to the base form of the verb. In this case, "Ann" is the subject and "drink" is the base form of the verb. Since "Ann" is a third person singular pronoun, we need to add "s" to the verb, resulting in "doesn't drink".

      Work

      Worked

    • D.

      Are working

    Correct Answer
    A. Work
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Work" because in the simple present tense, we use the base form of the verb (work) when the subject is a third-person singular noun or pronoun (such as "the students").

      Do and Does

    Correct Answer
    D. Do and Does
    Explanation
    The auxiliary verbs in Simple Present are "do" and "does." These verbs are used to form questions, negatives, and short answers in the present tense. "Do" is used with plural subjects and "does" is used with singular subjects. They are also used to emphasize or give extra meaning to the main verb in a sentence.

    Correct Answer
    A. It's used to express routines, facts, habits and general truths.
    Explanation
    The simple present tense is used to express routines, facts, habits, and general truths. This means that it is used to talk about actions or situations that happen regularly, such as daily routines or habitual actions. It is also used to state facts or general truths that are always true, regardless of the time. For example, "The sun rises in the east" is a general truth that is always true. Therefore, the simple present tense is used to express routines, facts, habits, and general truths.

    Correct Answer
    A. It's used to talk about things that happened and finished in the past
    Explanation
    The simple past tense is used to talk about actions or events that occurred and were completed in the past. It is used to describe past actions that have no connection to the present moment. This tense is commonly used to narrate stories or to discuss past experiences.

      Listened

    • B.

      Listening

    • C.

      Listen

    Correct Answer
    A. Listened
    Explanation
    The simple past of "Listen" is "Listened". In English grammar, the simple past tense is used to describe an action that happened in the past and is no longer ongoing. In this case, "Listened" is the correct form of the verb to indicate that someone listened to something in the past.

  • 10. 

    Simple Past of "Study"

      Study

    • C.

      Studyied

    • D.

      Studying

    Correct Answer
    B. Studied
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Studied" because it is the simple past tense form of the verb "study." In English, when we want to talk about an action that happened in the past and is now completed, we use the simple past tense. In this case, the action of studying has already been completed, so we use "studied" as the correct past tense form.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Simple past of "Stop"

    • A.

      Stoped

    • B.

      Stop

    • C.

      Stopped

    Correct Answer
    C. Stopped
    Explanation
    The simple past tense of the verb "stop" is "stopped." This is the correct answer because when forming the past tense of regular verbs in English, we typically add "-ed" to the base form of the verb. Therefore, "stopped" is the correct form of "stop" in the simple past tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Simple Past of "Travel"

    • A.

      Travaled

    • B.

      Traveld

    • C.

      Travelled

    Correct Answer
    C. Travelled
    Explanation
    "Travelled" is the correct answer for the simple past tense of the verb "travel". In English, regular verbs form their past tense by adding "-ed" to the base form of the verb. Since "travel" is a regular verb, we add "-ed" to form the past tense. Therefore, "traveled" is the correct spelling for the simple past tense of "travel".

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Simple Past of "Ride"

    • A.

      Rided

      Ride

    Correct Answer
    B. Rode
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Rode" because it is the simple past tense of the verb "ride." In English, the simple past tense is used to describe actions that happened in the past and are now completed. In this case, "rode" indicates that someone rode a bike, horse, or any other means of transportation in the past.
