1-Because of the recent number of break-ins to our system, security measures have been strengthened at the present.

a) Have been strengthened  b) will strengthen c) have strengthen  d) are being strengthen



2-The director said that we had to downsize the engineering team by 20 percent if the negotiations had fallen through.

What is wrong in the sentence ?

The multiple choice options don't make sense to me, unless I'm missing something here.  I would fix the sentence thus:


The director said that we would have had to downsize the engineering team by 20 percent if the negotiations had fallen through.


A)    a) Had

B)     b) By

C)      c)If

D)     d)Had fallen


                                       Be well,  CRS
