    Question Past Perfect, Past Simple, and Past Continuous

    Hi again.
    Could you help me solve these exercises, please?
    I have to join these sentences with the words in brackets and using the correct form of these tenses : Past Perfect, Past Simple, and Past Continuous

    1. The bell rang. They woke up. (when)
    My Answer: They woke up when the bell was ringing.


    2. She didn't tell the children. Their father went to prison. (that)
    My Answer: She didn't tell the children that their father went to prison.


    3.The judge didn't sentence the teenager. She listened to the evidence. (until)
    My Answer: no idea !!!

    Can I use these words "when", "that", and "until" while I'm using Past Perfect tense?

    Thank you.
    3. The judge didn't sentence the teenager until she had listened to the evidence.
    is it correct?
    I'm afraid, but how did you find the answer in first exercise?
