  • In the given sentence, we need a simple present verb tense as a general statement has been given here.

Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 7
  • The present perfect tense is used when the action is important and not the time of the action and the time of the action is not given in the sentence.
  • Examples,
    • have been to New York.
    • have watched this movie.
  • In the present perfect tense, 'has/ have + V3' is used.

Complete Sentence- I know all about that film because I have watched it twice.

Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 8

Direction: Choose the correct form of tense for the given sentence:

Q. According to researchers, our sleep time over the past century ______ by about 20 percent.

Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 8
  • In the given sentence we are talking about the data which is already covered so we use present perfect tense here i.e. 'has reduced' will come.
  • Present perfect tense combines the present tense and the perfect aspect used to express an event that happened in the past that has present consequences. The present perfect is used to indicate a link between the present and the past
    • Example: I have just finished my work.
  • Structure: Sub + has/have + V3 + object
  • Words from which we can identify present perfect tense: just, yet, never, already, ever, so far, up to now, recently.
  • Hence the correct sentence is- According to researchers, our sleep time over the past century has reduced by about 20 percent.
Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 9

Direction: Choose the correct form of the verbs.

Q. There is a programme on television that I want to watch ______ in five minutes.

Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 9
  • We use the present simple tense when we want to talk about fixed habits or routines – things that don't change. We use the present continuous to talk about actions that are happening at the present moment but will soon finish.
  • We can use the present continuous to talk about arrangements (plans which you have organised) in the future.
  • The present continuous is used to talk about arrangements for events at a time later than now. There is a suggestion that more than one person is aware of the event, and that some preparation has already happened. 
  • Present indefinite tense is used for something scheduled, which always occurs at the same time.
  • The given event is an event which more than one person might be aware of and also there is no scheduled time mentioned for the program, so 'It is starting' is the most appropriate option here.
  • Thus, the correct answer is 'it is starting' is the correct answer.

​The complete sentence is: There is a programme on television that I want to watch. It is starting in five minutes.

Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 10

Directions: Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blank.

Q. I ______ for forty minutes to see the doctor before my name was announced.

Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 10
  • The given sentence is in the past perfect continuous tense. The past perfect continuous tense shows that an action that started in the past continued up until another time in the past.
  • The past perfect continuous tense is constructed using had been + the verb’s present participle (base + -ing).
  • Let us explore the given options:
    • 'Were waiting' is in the past continuous form.
    • 'Had been waiting' is in the past perfect continuous form.
    • 'Have been waiting' is in the present perfect continuous form.
    • 'Am waiting' is in the present continuous form.
       

Hence, the correct answer is option 2.

Complete Sentence: I had been waiting for forty minutes to see the doctor before my name was announced.
