Choose the correct future tense form of the verb given in the bracket.
We don't think our teacher _____ (meet) us again.
The word 'again' suggests that the sentence is in the future tense.
Option B is the correct form of the verb here, and it represents a simple future tense.
In option A 'be' is missing in 'will be meeting' therefore it isn't the right form of future continuous tense.
Options C and D does not make the sentence meaningful.
Thus option B is the right answer.
The given statement has some error. From the given options, which is the correct way of writing the given sentence?
I am having a car.
'Have' and 'having' can be quite confusing. The rule is when we talk about something we own or possess e.g. car, house etc or when we talk about something that has an uncertain duration e.g a cold, a headache etc, we use 'have'. When we talk about something that has a definite beginning, duration, and end, we use 'having'. For example, I am having a baby in November, I am having dinner, etc.
Here, the sentence talks about possessing a car. So, the correct verb to use is 'have'.
The correct option is B) I have a car.
Fill in the blank with the appropriate form of the verb.
He said that he ______ for a walk this evening.
Here, 'would go' in simple future tense is correct because it is used as the past form of will when reporting what somebody has said or thought. Here, 'he' said that he 'would go' for a walk in the future (evening).
'Will' is used for showing that somebody is willing to do something or is used for asking somebody to do something. Example: Will you get up from that chair?
'Has been going' in present perfect continuous tense is used to indicate an action that started at some point in the past and may or may not be complete.
'Is' is used to indicate an action that is going on at the time of speaking.
Example: The child is going to school.
Pick the option that best corrects the following sentence:
I am going to the office every day by bus.
The given sentence is grammatically incorrect because we use 'am going' when we are going somewhere in the present and not for an activity performed on a regular basis.
From the options given, option A) is incorrect because 'were' is used for plural nouns/pronouns but here the pronoun is singular, 'I'. Option B) 'will have gone' is incorrect because it is in the future perfect tense. Options C and D are both correct. Option C has 'go to' which is the right tense (simple present) to use for habits or events that take place on a regular basis. Option D is not grammatically correct, it should be 'I have been going to the office. . .'. Therefore, option C is the correct answer.
Fill in the blank with the appropriate form of verb.
The boss cannot see anybody as he _____ some letters.
The answer is A. Is dictating
Reason- The sentence begins with cannot which introduces the present tense of the sentence. The verb is dictating is in present continuous tense
Was dictating refers to past dictation of letters.
Has been dictating imposes that boss has been dictating the letters for a long time.
Has dictated implies that the work has been completed just now. SO, the other options are wrong.
Choose the option that completes the sentence correctly:
Jane _____ to look for a job.
The given context refers to a decision that has already been made at the time of speaking. This indicates an action that began in the past and has continued till the present as Jane has apparently just made the decision and has not started a job as yet. Thus, present perfect tense will be used.
Option A "has decided" is correct as it is written as S + has/have + V3 + O. So, 'has decided' is the correct choice.
Option B 'is thinking' is incorrect as 'is thinking' is followed by 'of looking for a job'.
Option C is incorrect as 'had better' is not followed by the preposition 'to'. It would just be 'had better look for a job'.
Option D is incorrect as 'made him' is also not followed by the preposition 'to' and would be written as
made him look for a job'.
Thus, only option A is the correct answer.
Choose the option that completes the sentence correctly:
My best friend and I ______ each other for over fifteen years.
The action of knowing is actively going on in the present, but it started some time in the past. To show that an action started in the past and still continues in the present, we use the Present Perfect tense. The correct answer is 'have known'.
Pick the option that best fills in the blank in the given sentence to complete it logically and correctly.
As soon as I _______ home, it started raining heavily.
We know the tense of the given sentence by the phrase "it started raining" which is in simple past tense, hence the phrase that fills the blank should also be in simple past tense. Option B is hence correct, as 'got' is in the simple past tense. Option A is incorrect because 'get' is in the present tense, and the sentence is in the past tense. Option C is incorrect because "will have gotten" is in the future perfect tense, whereas the sentence is in the past. Option D is incorrect because "had gotten" is in the past perfect tense, if we use this we'd have to change the phrase "it started" to "it had started", they both need to be of the same tense, 'as soon as' means that both the actions happened at the same time. So, both the tense verbs ('got' and 'started') must be in simple past tense.
The following sentence has not been edited. There is one error in the line. Choose the option that has the incorrect word and the correction against it.
He moved through the row and sit on a chair.
The given sentence is in simple past form as can be inferred from the word 'moved'. Therefore the accompanying verb in the sentence 'sit' should also be in its simple past form which is 'sat'. Therefore options B, C and D are incorrect.
Whereas other options are not in simple past form, therefore, are incorrect. Option A is the correct answer.
Choose the correct option to complete the given sentence.
John ______ cricket right now.
'Right now' in the sentence indicates that the activity referred in the sentence has started and is still continuing, therefore the tense used for the verb should be in present continuous.
Option C is in the correct form of present continuous tense,
Whereas other options are not in present continuous form, therefore are incorrect. 'Plays' is used with third person singular and plural forms, whereas 'play' is used with First and Second person forms. While 'would' is used to convey sentences in subjunctive mood. Therefore options A, B and D are incorrect.
