    "You can play outside until it gets dark."?

    I'm not sure I fully understand your question.

    I am sorry, as bhaisahab said, it is really difficult to understand your question.
    Maybe if you explain it a little bit more we can help you.

    Regarding the difference of conditionals, there are many available texts in internet. See for instance: First, Second, and Third Conditional

    Firstly, a little more respect for your teacher might be in order.

    Secondly - is the teacher perhaps asking you to report on the last book you read?

    I could understand your question. I hope you could understand my answers.
    1.
    Native English speakers don't usually classify their conditionals because the classification is fuzzy and not mutually exclusive. To put it simply, different types of conditionals only differ in the likelihood in which the condition is fulfilled.

    Type 1: Condition is likely.
    "If I have time, I will go with you"
    Type 2: Condition is unlikely.
    "It I found the time, I would go with you"
    Type 3: Condition is impossible.
    "If I had found the time, I would have gone with you."
    "If I were you, I would have gone myself."

    2. "You can play outside until it gets dark (outside)".

    3. "The last book I read is the Quran, with the message, 'Are those who know equal with those who know not? But only men (and women) of understanding will pay heed (to his or her teacher)…' (Az-Zumar: 9)".

    If she is inexperienced, then more patience from her pupils will help her better than anger.

    Do you mean that you are asked to put the sentence into a passive form?

    If you want it in reported speech, try this: He/she asked me what book I had last read".
