    Grammar assistance

    Grammar assistance
    I was wondering if anyone could please help me with the following question, I have spent two weeks studing 30 questions, a few of the questions have me stuck. I appreciate any assistance you can provide.

    I'm trying to find out the correct grammatical or identify the correct tense or grammatical category.

    For example:

    'He is swimming really well' is an example of present continuous.

    The following are the ones I am having trouble with:


    • The new supermarket was opened last year.
    • I live in a small city close to Oxfordshire.
    • I have already told you.
    • John is having a big party on Sunday.
    • I haven't been to the gym for years.
    • Have you ever met the Queen?
    • If you don't do the work, you won't pass your exams.
    • Guernica was painted by Picasso.
    • I can't play the saxophone.
    • By the time we had arrived, the plane had taken off.
    • He's been working all night!
    • Look at my beautiful platinum ring.



    Thank you
    Clare

    NB: This is not homework nor an assignment, I am not able to put the above sentences into the correct grammar tense and seek assistance please.

    They are all perfect, but none of them is a question. Could you please clarify why you call them questions?

    Re: Grammar assistance

    What do you mean by "I'm trying to find out the correct grammatical"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
