    1. You choose "4. completed"

    The context of the sentence tells you, this actor FINISHED one task, then went onto the next. Hence, you need to use perfect tense (完成式) to describe the action being terminated.

    2. You choose " 2. is washing " or "4. was washing"

    You might be tricked by "would" in the sentence. Using "would" is just to express politeness. The context of the sentence tells you Linda is doing something (an on-going action), so she cannot open the door.

    Of course, choosing "4. was washing" has nothing wrong as far as the context is concerned. The only difference is one is to describe a current event, and the other describes a past event. However, I would treat the sentence tries to express in a polite way, so I would choose "2. is washing".

    Poster! To solve this kind of questions, the key is NOT how good you know grammar, but how well you can understand the context of sentence (in my own word, the feeling of English).

    Once you can fully grasp the meaning of the sentence, then you can use your understanding of the grammar to express that understanding properly.

    Otherwise knowing grammar is one thing, how to use it is another thing, the connection between them is to gain that feeling.

    If you can thoroughly comprehend English, then you don't need to worry about fussing with tense. English is a tool of communication. You use it based upon a certain logic and rules.

    Let me give you an analogy:

    Say people want to go from point A to point B in a city.

    One thing for sure is, not everyone will take the same route. It depends upon individual situation.

    2013-10-23 11:32:38 補充:

    people run different errands, person A might need to go to bank, B might need to pick up kids, C might need to go to post office ...

    Because of these different errands, to go from point A to point B will create different routes.

    This is why English has different tenses to accommodate these situations. Hence, you need to know your situation (the context) well to know which route (tense) to take.

    2013-10-23 11:37:10 補充:

    As a student or beginner for learning English, people might think if I can know all these routes(tenses), then I would know which to take. The problem is if you don't know the errand (the context), how do you know which one to take?

    The first question demonstrates my saying very well.

    Therefore, you can study for test, or you can study for your own person enhancement. I am sure, for personal enhancement, you can also do well in test, but it might NOT be true vice versa.
