    Correct Answer
    B. Scheduled
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "scheduled" because it is the past participle form of the verb "schedule." In this sentence, the word "must" indicates that something needs to be done in the future, so the past participle form is used to show that the meeting has to be arranged or planned in advance.

    • D.

      Complete

    Correct Answer
    B. Have completed
    Explanation
    The given sentence is a conditional statement in the past. The phrase "if I had not been constantly interrupted" indicates that there were interruptions that prevented the completion of the report. The correct answer "have completed" is in the past perfect tense, which is used to express an action that would have been completed if certain conditions had been met. Therefore, the correct answer implies that the speaker was unable to complete the report due to constant interruptions.

    • D.

      Already

    Correct Answer
    C. Ever
    Explanation
    The word "ever" is the correct answer because it is used to ask about whether someone has had a specific experience or done something at any time in their life. In this question, "ever" is used to inquire if the person has presented a proposal to the chairperson at any point in time.

      Have met

    • C.

      Are meeting

    • D.

      Met

    Correct Answer
    A. Meet
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "meet" because it is the correct verb tense to use in this sentence. The phrase "by the time" indicates a future point in time, and the use of "will have" indicates that the action of solving the problem will be completed before that future point. Therefore, the verb "meet" is used in the base form without any additional verb tense markers.

    • C.

      Had spoken

    • D.

      Speak

    Correct Answer
    C. Had spoken
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had spoken." This is because the sentence is in the past tense and the phrase "after we" suggests that the action of speaking with the managers happened before the decision to make operational changes. "Had spoken" is the past perfect tense, indicating that the speaking occurred before the decision-making.

      Telephone

    • C.

      Phoned

    • D.

      Ring

    Correct Answer
    C. Phoned
    Explanation
    The word "phoned" is the correct answer because it is the past tense form of the verb "phone." In the given sentence, the subject "client" is the one performing the action of making a phone call. Since the sentence is in the past tense, the correct verb form to use is "phoned."

      Than

    Correct Answer

The other options, "through," "of," and "than," do not convey the same meaning of comparing two things.
