When I left the train at Victoria Station my first impression was of rain and fog and people with umbrellas. A taxi-cab, which (modal verb + use) (1)  [input answers="might have been"/]  by Lot and his family as they (leave) (2)  [input answers="left"/]  Sodom and Gomorrah, (take) (3)  [input answers="took"/]  me and my luggage and (struggle) (4)  [input answers="struggled"/]  bravely through the traffic. And what traffic and what crowds! I never (believe) (5)  [input answers="had never believed"/]  my geography teacher when he (tell) (6)  [input answers="told"/]  us there (be) (7)  [input answers="were"/]  more people in London than in the whole of my country. I (think) (8)  [input answers="thought"/]  he just (say) (9)  [input answers="had just said"/]  it (make) (10)  [input answers="to make"/]  his lessons more interesting, but I (believe) (11)  [input answers="believed"/]  him now.

However, I got to my little hotel at last, and the first thing that took my eye was the porter, a big fat man with a round pink face like an advertisement for babies’ food. Then I met the manager. He rubbed his hands all the time as if he (wash) (12)  [input answers="was washing"/]  them, and (smile) (13)  [input answers="smiled"/]  without (stop) (14)  [input answers="stopping"/] . What he (say) (15)  [input answers="said"/]  I (modal verb + not understand) (16)  [input answers="could not understand"/]  though I (learn) (17)  [input answers="had learned"/]  English at school. I said to myself, “Perhaps he (not speak) (18)  [input answers="doesn't speak"/]  it very well.” But I told him my name, and he smiled again and told one of the little boys with brass buttons (show) (19)  [input answers="to show"/]  me up to my room. Ten minutes later I (lie) (20)  [input answers="was lying"/]  in a hot bath (wash) (21)  [input answers="washing"/]  off the last dusty reminders of the Continent; another ten minutes and I (be) (22)  [input answers="was"/]  under the bedclothes and fast asleep.

When I woke up next morning, I felt hungrier than I ever (feel) (23)  [input answers="had ever felt"/]  in my life before; I seemed (have) (24)  [input answers="to have"/]  a hole instead of a stomach. I dressed quickly and hurried down to the dining-room. It was a big room with six tall windows and the ugliest wallpaper I ever (see) (25)  [input answers="had ever seen"/] . However, I (tell) (26)  [input answers="had been told"/]  that the hotel was not beautiful but that you better (feed) (27)  [input answers="were better fed"/]  there than in any other hotel in London; and that was what I (want) (28)  [input answers="wanted"/] just then.
The waiter (come) (29)  [input answers="came"/]  (hurry) (30)  [input answers="hurrying"/]  up. Before I (come) (31)  [input answers="came"/]  downstairs I (prepare) (32)  [input answers="had prepared"/]  myself very carefully for what I (modal verb +say) (33)  [input answers="must say"/] . I (look) (34)  [input answers="had looked"/]  three times in my dictionary (make) (35)  [input answers="to make"/]  sure that “breakfast” really (mean) (36)  [input answers="meant"/]  “breakfast”. I (try) (37)  [input answers="had tried"/]  to get the right pronunciation and (stand) (38)  [input answers="had stood"/]  in front of a mirror and (twist) (39)  [input answers="twisted"/]  my mouth until it (ache) (40)  [input answers="ached"/] .
