    Very Tricky Question

    Hello to all, it's my first time here

    Feeling good already.

    need some advice/info/correction

    What is correct?(and WHY is very Important!)
    I'm talking to the director of Wall Street Institute for English on Friday.

    No sooner had I opened my front door ... that something was wrong.

    did i realize
    than i realized

    (fill in the dots) (why)

    And one more

    Sorry you didn't find me at home. ... out to do some shopping.

    I've gone (why)
    I'd gone (why)

    I failed on both. But i am 999 million percent sure (don't know why) that 'did i realize' is correct.Just can't explain it.
    And 'I've gone' is correct because i left a note.(or not?)

    1 It is 'than' because it goes with the comparative form 'sooner'.
    2 I'd gone- this is because this action, leaving the house, was before the other past action.
