    Question celta test, tense of verbs


    Hello everyone, I am completing my Celta pre-interview test and I would appreciate anyone who has the time to review my answers to ensure I am in on the correct path. It has been a while since I have dissected the English language. Thank you in advance for your time and help!




    Identify the tense of the underline verb. My answers are in bold.
    1. I will do it before I forget. future
    2. He has been there many times. present perfect
    3. She went even though she was late. past
    4. Do you know who he is? present
    5. How long have you been working? present perfect progressive
    6. They were doing their best. past progressive

    Complete these sentences using the correct tense of the 'verb" indicated. Name the verb tense. My answers are in bold.

    1. If I "known" had known about the party, I would have attended. past perfect

    2. Oh yes, I "be" have been to Europe many times. present perfect

    3. I "finish" will have finished with this assignment by the time he returns. future perfect

    4. If it's a nice day I "attend" will attend. future

    5. While I "sleep" was sleeping he was mowing the lawn. past progressive

    6. If you simply "walk" walk to work, you'd lose weight. present

    I want to apologize if I have offended anyone. I wasn’t looking for corrections just an X out of 12 are correct or no, you are way off please review (x). Prior to my posting, I read several other questions relating to the Celta test and it seemed as if several other members submitted similar posts. Again I hope not to offend anyone and I appreciate the feedback.

    You have not offended. Your asking us to check your assignment, to show you which questions are correct and which are incorrect , is in fact a form of correction. We can not help you in that way. If there is a specific question you have about grammar, usage, and style, please ask.
