Question

Hi, the answer provided is ‘made’. How do I explain that it is ‘made’ instead of ‘ had made’? Thanks!

Answer

Hi, the clue for this question lies in the second clause (after the comma). The would not + be (base verb) tells us that this sentence is testing the grammar structure of the second conditional. Following the grammatical structure of the second conditional, the ‘if’ clause must use past tense instead of past participle. Thus, the answer is ‘made’. For more details about the second conditional, you can refer to this website: https://www.grammar.cl/english/second-conditional.htm
