    Unhappy grammar point

    Help, please put me out of my misery. I'm not looking for answers to the below questions, as I still have to justify my answers, but how do I determine the answer. I am told that the practice of explaining the grammar point comes with teaching experience. But on reading the question, "the most likely," I find the grammar point mystifying, especially when I am advised that there are no rules for this point.





    3 Determine what the most likely grammar point will be in each of the following and summarize or define it.


    A. I would go if I had the time.


    B. What have you done with your hair?


    C. That sign was just painted.


    D. He could have phoned but I doubt it.


    E. SheŽll have finished by the time we arrive.

    What exactly do you mean? What is the context?
    Maybe:
    A - conditional
    B - present perfect
    C - just or passive voice
    Is that what you mean? What is it for?

    What is a grammar point?

    Why 'will be' and not 'is'?

    not a teacher
