_ (hand) in last week.
If this is an excercise to train students on the use of the to- infinitives, it's good. But they are not all corrrectly composed
as intended from a semantic level..

a)She's late.She must _______ (forget) our appointment. ( Forget - is ok, but must have forgot is better in my
opinion)

b)He hopes __________(select) to play in next week's football match. Do you mean "to be selected to play...?"
As it stands, it is not a good sentence.
f

h)You should _be working (work),not watching the television. If you answered "work", then you need "watch".

j)I'm glad I'm not famous, (because) I'd hate _being recognized (recognize) all the time.

k)You should ________(tell) me you were coming. OK, but " should have told me " is more idiomatic.

Consider: My home work is late becasue I forgot to hand it / turn in last week.
