Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Where did you go last summer?

    • A.

      I go to Paris.

    • B.

      I went to Paris.

    • C.

      I goed to Paris.

    Correct Answer
    B. I went to Paris.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I went to Paris." This is because the past tense of the verb "go" is "went." The other options, "I go to Paris" and "I goed to Paris," are incorrect because they do not use the correct past tense form of the verb.

  • 2. 

    How did you go to Paris?

    • A.

      I go to Paris by plane.

    • B.

      I goed to Paris by plane.

    • C.

      I went to Paris by plane.

    Correct Answer
    C. I went to Paris by plane.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I went to Paris by plane." This is the correct answer because it uses the past tense form of the verb "go" (went) to indicate that the action of going to Paris has already happened. Additionally, it correctly uses the preposition "by" to indicate the mode of transportation (plane) used to travel to Paris. The other options ("I go to Paris by plane" and "I goed to Paris by plane") are incorrect because they either use the present tense form of the verb or an incorrect past tense form.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Who did you go with?

    • A.

      I went with my parents.

    • B.

      I goed with my parents.

    • C.

      I go with my parents.

    Correct Answer
    A. I went with my parents.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I went with my parents" because the question is asking about a past event, so the correct verb tense to use is the past tense. "Went" is the past tense of "go," which matches the verb tense in the question. The other options, "goed" and "go," are not in the past tense and do not match the question.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How long did you stay there?

    • A.

      I stay there two weeks.

    • B.

      I stayed there two weeks.

    • C.

      I staied there two weeks.

    Correct Answer
    B. I stayed there two weeks.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I stayed there two weeks." This answer is correct because it uses the past tense verb "stayed" to indicate that the person is talking about a past action. Additionally, the word "there" is used correctly to refer to a specific location. The phrase "two weeks" is also grammatically correct and provides a clear answer to the question about the duration of the person's stay.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Who did you meet there?

    • A.

      I met two English girls.

    • B.

      I meet two English girls.

    • C.

      I meeted two English girls.

    Correct Answer
    A. I met two English girls.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I met two English girls." This is because the verb "meet" is in the past tense, so it should be conjugated as "met" instead of "meet" or "meeted." Additionally, the use of "I" as the subject is appropriate in this sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I __________ my maths homework yesterday.

    • A.

      Doing

    • B.

      Did

    • C.

      Does

    • D.

      Do

    Correct Answer
    B. Did
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "did" because it is the past tense form of the verb "do." Since the sentence is referring to an action that happened in the past ("yesterday"), the verb needs to be in the past tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    They_________  a farm two weeks ago.

    • A.

      Visits

    • B.

      Visited

    • C.

      Visit

    • D.

      Have visited

    Correct Answer
    B. Visited
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "visited" because the sentence is in the past tense and refers to an action that happened two weeks ago. "Visited" is the past tense form of the verb "visit" and correctly indicates the completed action of visiting the farm in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Jenny and Peggy their brother.

    • A.

      Does not help

    • B.

      Did not help

    • C.

      Didn't help

    • D.

      Doesn't help

    Correct Answer
    B. Did not help
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "did not help." This is because the sentence is in the past tense, indicated by the use of "did" and "brother." Therefore, the correct verb form to use is "did not help," which shows that Jenny and Peggy did not assist their brother in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The children_________  at home last weekend.

    • A.

      Was not

    • B.

      Were not

    • C.

      Wasn't was 

    • D.

      Weren't not

    Correct Answer
    B. Were not
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "were not." This is the correct answer because the subject "children" is plural, so the verb "were" should be used instead of "was." The word "not" is added to indicate that the action of being at home did not happen.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The boys_________mudguards of their bicycles

    • A.

      Taked off

    • B.

      Took off

    • C.

      Take off 

    • D.

      Taken off 

    Correct Answer
    B. Took off
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "took off." In this sentence, the verb should be in the past tense to match the subject "boys" and indicate that the action of removing the mudguards from their bicycles has already happened. "Took off" is the correct past tense form of the verb "take off."
