Hi everyone,

I'm new in this forum and I have to fill in the following gaps or form the right TENSE with the verbs given in the brackets...

Can someone tell me what belongs into them so I can check if I made mistakes!

Thanks in advance

Here are the questions:

T...... Tom , A.... Ann,

T: ........I speak to Ann, please?

A: Ann (speak).

T: Tom here. Where you (be) Ann? I (try) to reach you for the last half hour. You (not leave) your office at 5.00?

A: Yes, I ..., but today I (go) to the dentist and only just (get) in. It (be) lovely to hear your voice, Tom. I (not know) you (be) in London.

T: I only (arrive) this morning. I (ring) you before but I (be) terribly bury all day covering a conference. It only just (end). You (do) anything tonight, Ann?

A: Yes, I (go) to the theatre.

T: That (be) a pity. I (be) here for one night.

A: I (be) sorry, Tom. If you (tell) me you were coming up, I (keep) the evening free. But you didn't tell me.

T: I (not know) myself till this morning when the boss suddenly (dash) into the office and (tell) me to rush up here to cover the conference.

A: I thought Peter usually (do) the conferences.

T: Yes, he (do) but when he (drive) up here last night he (have) an accident and (take) to hospital. So I (do) it instead. Ann, you really (go) out tonight...(neg. interr) you get out of it?

A: No, I....(neg.). I'm free tomorrow but I (suppose) that (be) too late.

T (suddenly changing his plans): No, I (stay) another day, I daresay the boss (get) over it. You (like) to meet me for dinner tomorrow?

A: That (be) wonderful! But Tom, you (be) sure it (be) all right?

T: It (be) all right. I (ring) the boss and tell him I (stay) another night. I (stay) an extra night in York last month and he (not seem) too put out about it.

A: Why you (stay) an extra night in York?

T: I (tell) you tomorrow. Goodnight, Ann.

IN FIVE CASES (doen't matter which ones) PLEASE SAY WHY YOU HAVE USED THE TENSE IN QUESTION!!

Thanks a lot

Vienna - next time, please post your own guesses and we will tell you if they are correct or not. I do have a couple of corrections to DJ's answers:

I went to the dentist and only just getting in. Only just got in.

But when he was droving up here last night When he was driving

Why did you stayed Why did you stay

I was terribly in a hurry I was in a terrible hurry
Thanks khoff Emotion: smile Since I had to deal with some other works at the same time,I typed wrongly. In fact I could write all the correct answers.

Best regards,
