    • B.

      Ate

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Where did you go last night?

    • A.

      I went for a walk. 

    • B.

      I goed for a walk. 

    • C.

      I did go for a walk. 

    Correct Answer
    A. I went for a walk. 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I went for a walk." This answer is correct because it uses the correct verb tense, "went," to indicate a past action. The other options, "I goed for a walk" and "I did go for a walk," are grammatically incorrect. "Goed" is not a correct past tense form of "go," and the use of "did" is unnecessary and does not fit the sentence structure.

    • A.

      Sent

    • B.

      Ran 

    • D.

      Found

    Correct Answer
    D. Found
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "found" because it indicates that the speaker located their ring after searching for it, suggesting that they had been looking for it and finally discovered it under their bed.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How did you get to Athens? I ________ (drive) my car. 

    • A.

      Drove

    • B.

      Drived

    Correct Answer
    A. Drove
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "drove". In this sentence, the speaker is talking about how they traveled to Athens. The verb "drive" is the past tense form of the verb, which is used to indicate an action that occurred in the past. Therefore, "drove" is the correct form to use in this sentence. "Drived" is not a valid past tense form of the verb "drive".

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Last summer I _______ in the sea every day. 

    • A.

      Swimmed

    • B.

      Swam

    • C.

      Went 

    Correct Answer
    B. Swam
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "swam" because it is the past tense form of the verb "swim." In the sentence, the speaker is referring to an action that happened in the past, specifically last summer. Therefore, the past tense form of the verb is used to indicate this. "Swimmed" is not a correct past tense form of the verb "swim," and "went" does not convey the same meaning as swimming in the sea.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What did you do yesterday?

    • A.

      I read a book.

    • B.

      I readed a book. 

    Correct Answer
    A. I read a book.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I read a book" because "read" is the past tense form of the verb "read," so it is grammatically correct. "Readed" is not a correct past tense form of the verb, so it is incorrect.

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    B. Told

    • D.

      Broken

    Correct Answer
    A. Broke

    • C.

      I wored a red dress and black shoes. 

    Correct Answer
    B. I wore a red dress and black shoes. 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I wore a red dress and black shoes." This answer is correct because it uses the past tense form of the verb "wear" which is "wore." The other options, "I weared" and "I wored," are incorrect because they use non-standard verb forms that do not follow the regular conjugation pattern.

      Took 

    Correct Answer
    A. Talked 
    Explanation

      Read

    Correct Answer

    I  _____  (ride) my motorcycle towards the sunset yesterday. 

    • A.

      Rided

    • B.

      Rode

    • C.

      Roded

    Correct Answer
    B. Rode
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "rode." In this sentence, the verb "ride" is in the past tense. The past tense of "ride" is "rode." Therefore, the sentence should be "I rode my motorcycle towards the sunset yesterday."

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    It ____ (take) a little time before I understood what happened. 

    • A.

      Taked 

    • B.

      Took 

    Correct Answer
    B. Took 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "took". This is the past tense form of the verb "take". In the sentence, the speaker is referring to a past event that required some time for them to understand. Therefore, "took" is the appropriate verb form to indicate that it took some time before the speaker understood what happened.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    When I was a teenager, I ___ in my diary every day. 

    • A.

      Wrote

    • B.

      Spoke

    Correct Answer
    A. Wrote
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "wrote". This is because the verb "wrote" is the past tense form of the verb "write", which is the appropriate action for recording thoughts and experiences in a diary. The other option "spoke" is not suitable in this context as it implies verbal communication rather than written expression.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Bring in the past simple. 

    • A.

      Bringed

    • B.

      Bringht 

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    B. Brought 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "brought". In this sentence, we need to use the past simple tense of the verb "bring". "Brought" is the correct past simple form of "bring". "Bringed" is not a word in English, and "bringht" is a misspelling. Therefore, the correct answer is "brought".

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Left

    Correct Answer
    A. Left 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "left". In this sentence, we are talking about an action that happened in the past, so we need to use the past tense of the verb "leave". "Leaved" is not a correct form of the verb "leave" in the past tense.
