    Default test questions

    Hello,

    I'm struggling with test questions again.

    (1) Before Tom goes to bed later tonight, he ____ (email) his girlfriend.

    A. emails B. will email C. will have emailed D. has emailed

    B and C are both correct, aren't they?

    (2) Before Tom went to bed last night, he ____ (take) a shower.

    A. took B. had taken C. have taken D. would take

    A and B are both fine, aren't they?

    According to the way the task is worded, I'm supposed to choose only one alternative.
    I would be grateful for help.

    Thank you.

    Yes, but if choosing one answer, I would go for B & A
