Fill in the blank with the appropriate form of verb.
The boss cannot see anybody as he _____ some letters.
Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 1
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.
Fill in the blank with the appropriate form of the verb.
He ______ so hard that he is certain to succeed.
Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 2
Here, 'has worked' in present perfect tense is correct because it is used to indicate an action which started in the past and has continued up until now. Here, he started working hard (in the past) and due to that, he is certain to succeed. 'Had worked' is incorrect because it is used to indicate a completed action of the past that happened before another event took place. Example: The project was bound to succeed because I really had worked very hard on it. 'Will work' in future simple tense is incorrect because it is used to indicate an action that has not taken place as yet. Example: I will work very hard on this venture to make it a success. 'Work' does not fit in the sentence.
Change the sentence with the correct form of future tense of the verb given in the bracket.
Tomorrow, my mother _________ (take) us to the movies.
Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 3
The event that is being talked about, has not happened yet. It will take place in the future. When talking about future events that are certain or represent a fact, we use Simple Future Tense.
Simple Future Tense is usually of the form -
Subject + "will" + verb
Here the verb is "take". Thus, the right form would be -
Subject + "will take"
Thus, Option D is correct.
Choose the most appropriate form of the verb below.
The players _____ (play) tennis next Monday.
Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 4
The appropriate form of a verb can be used in the sentence considering the context of the sentence. Out of the four options, 'Will be playing' is the correct option since the sentence refers to the situation that would happen in future as the word 'Next' used clearly states the future. 'Played' and 'Had been playing' are used for the actions of the past and 'Have been playing' is used for the actions of 'Present Perfect'. Thus, the sentence would become: The players will be playing tennis next Monday.
Hence, option B 'will be playing' is correct.
A sentence can be formed when A, B, C, and D are put in an order. Identify the part which has an error.
Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 5
The correct sentence would be " when the young boy was accused of stealing he started to cry." After accused we put the preposition 'of' followed by a verbal noun or gerund. So, instead of 'to steal' it would be 'of stealing'. 'Stealing' is a gerund here, because it is the 'ing' form of the verb 'steal' and functions as a noun.
Choose the option that completes the sentence correctly:
Jane _____ to look for a job.
Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 6
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.
Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 7
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.
Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 8
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.
Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 9
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.
Fill in the blank with the correct form of the verb given in the brackets:
He comes across some friends who _______ (inform) him about the ATM and E-Banking which will be introduced shortly.
Detailed Solution for Test: Tenses - 1 - Question 10
The sentence clearly indicates a situation which is in the present tense. This is evident from the word 'comes' which is in the simple present tense. The sentence also talks about something that will happen shortly. Option A) should have informed is in the past tense and the word 'should' makes it obligatory which is incorrect in the given context. Option B) had informed is in the past perfect tense and is also incorrect. Option C) is in the simple past tense and is incorrect as well. So, the correct option is option D) as it is consistent the tense of verb 'comes'
