Choose the correct answer. or are/is there none. please give some explanation if possible.?
Victor: Who could have done this?
Jack: Go in quickly and see if we’ve lost anything.
(A) are breaking (B) have broken (C) were broken (D) will break.
OK. they want to choose (C) “were broken”
but it does not sound right. I was thinking “are broken” . Which is not an option.
Because Jack says. “Oh no! “
However, I would’ve chosen (B) so that the “have broken” would go along with the “have done this.”
The door and the window “have broken” (B), implies they broke by themselves, which we know didn’t happen in the context of this exchange. (Victor asks, WHO COULD HAVE DONE THIS)
And, obviously, it can’t be A or D because those are present and future tense and we know Victor is referring to the action taking place in the past.
were and have done are pastence
