    Correct Answer
    D. Would
    Explanation
    In the given sentence, the verb "take" is in the past tense ("took"), indicating that the action of going swimming with the speaker's dad would happen in the past. The word "would" is commonly used to express past habits or actions that were repeated in the past. Therefore, "would" is the correct answer in this case.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. Given
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "given" because it is the past participle form of the verb "give" and is used in this sentence to show a hypothetical situation in the past. The sentence suggests that if "they" had given Justin more time in the past, he would have been able to do a better job.

    • C.

      Would have

    • D.

      Will have

    Correct Answer
    A. Would
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would". In this sentence, the speaker is talking about a hypothetical situation in the past. They are imagining what would have happened if they had caught the 10 o'clock train. Using "would" indicates that the outcome is uncertain and dependent on a condition that did not happen.

      Would come into

    • D.

      Will come into

    Correct Answer
    A. Came into
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "came into." This is because the phrase "came into" is used to describe the acquisition of something, in this case, a fortune. The sentence structure follows the conditional pattern of "If + past simple, would + base verb." So, the correct sentence would be "If I came into a fortune, I would give up working."

      Can tell

    • C.

      Could tell

    • D.

      Told

    Correct Answer
    C. Could tell
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "could tell". This is because the sentence is in the past tense and expresses a hypothetical situation. "Could tell" is the correct form of the verb "tell" to use in this context to indicate the ability to give instructions or advice if the speaker had knowledge of how something worked.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    9. If we had caught the 10 o'clock train, we ___________________________________ there by lunch-time.

    • A.

      Would get

    • B.

      Would have got

    • C.

      Could get

    • D.

      Could have get

    Correct Answer
    B. Would have got
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would have got." This is because the sentence is in the past unreal condition, indicating a hypothetical situation that did not happen. The use of "would have" indicates the unrealized outcome of catching the train at 10 o'clock, which would have resulted in reaching the destination by lunchtime.

      Would know

    • C.

      Could have known

    • D.

      Can know

    Correct Answer
    B. Would know
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would know". This is because the sentence is in the past tense and refers to a hypothetical situation. The use of "had brought" indicates that the action of bringing a map did not happen in the past. Therefore, the correct conditional form to use is "would know", which expresses the hypothetical outcome of having a map in the present.
