    But there is a problem. Exercise 1 the word "now" is in the second sentence, and you crossed it out. So, I have to complete that sentence like that.

    If Phil_______ from university NOW.

    I canīt eliminate it. Then, what can I do?

    I don't see the word "now" in the sentence...only in your answer.

    If it has to be there then this would be how you use it.

    If Phil had passed his exams last term he'd have graduated from university by now.
