Hi, thankyou for your explanations as they are clear to understand and follow:
My question here is if I have answered the following past simple sentences correctly (my answers are in capitals): I have to choose one of the following and match it to the sentence:
Reported Speech , past state , 2nd conditional , present regret/wish , past habit , polite refusal , completed action at a specified time
1. She said she was 22 years old - PAST STATE
2. I visited my aunt last week- PAST STATE
3. France was a monarchy- REPORTED SPEECH
4. If I had a boat , I'd sail around the world- 2nd CONDITIONAL
Thankyou for your help and advice.
They all look fabulous.
