MCQ

From the set of sentences given below in question, choose the sentence that is grammatically correct.

Options

  • As soon as I boarded the train, I realized that I left my wallet at home.

  • As soon as I boarded the train, I realize that I had left wallet at home.

  • As soon as I board the train, I realized that I leave my wallet at home.

  • As soon as I boarded the train, I realized that I had left my wallet at home.

Solution

Two past actions are combined with “as soon as.” to show that something happened. ‘at the very moment’ or ‘shortly after’ another action was completed (‘boarded’ and ‘realised’ in this case). Realisotion happens after the action or event has happened. Therefore, the past perfect of the action will be used with ‘realised.’

Therefore, 'As soon as I boarded the train, I realized that I had left my wallet at home.' is the correct answer.
