“They A had went to the lake B without me C by the time D I got there,” said Jacques. E No error.
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option C
The correct form for the past perfect tense of the irregular verb “to go” is “had gone,” not “had went.” “Went” is only used as the past tense, without the auxiliary “had.” The prepositional phrase (B) is correct. The two parts of the dependent clause (C and D) “by the time I got there” are correct.
