    Post You have four hours to complete this exam

    Hi,

    What is the correct answer

    You have four hours to complete this exam. ..... early, you may turn in your papers and leave the room.

    A-Should you finish.
    B-Should finish.
    C-You should finish.
    D-Should you have finished.

    Thank you in advance

    PS: I'm preparing for an exam and I'm working on the the last year one.

    As Soothing Dave said in response to another of your questions:

    1. You need to try first.
    2. Follow the forum guidelines and give your threads meaningful titles.

    No, that's incorrect.

    "C- You should finish" would only be correct if it were required to finish early, which is unlikely.
    "A- Should you finish" would be the correct answer, meaning "if (= should) you finish early".
