    Can we use Simple Past or Past Perfect in the blanks?

    Note my corrections above. Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter. We don't put a space before a question mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
