    Thank you my teacher for your correction, I highly appreciate it.

    1. I didn't take an aspirin, that's why I have a headache now. '
    If he took had taken an aspirin, he would not have a headache.
    I thought that it is conditional type II, which we use it to talk about a present situation which is impossible , so, the condition cannot be fulfilled.


    Excuse me for my lengty topic.
    Thank you again.
    All the best

    Thank you so much teacher for your correction.

    Really I wonder how could we answer the third and the fourth question if we have not already known that Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, and Hollywoodis in Los Angeles.

    Have a nice day,

    That is a very fair point. It assumes that the person answering the questions already knows these snippets of general knowledge.

    good afternoon,

    I think that is a grammar exam, so, it must be related only to what we have studied in the classroom and not about general informations !!

    Respectfully yours,
