Identify the segment in the sentence which contains the grammatical error.
If Priya was hiding something from me, she would have not been here.
Correct Answer : a ) If Priya was hidingExplanation :
The error is in part a.
The given sentence carries third conditional.
Third conditional is used to express 'impossible' conditions. They are impossible because they happened in the past and we cannot change them.
The pattern for third conditional is –
If + had + third form of verb; would have/could have/ should have + third form.
Therefore, the correction is ‘If Priya had hidden/hid something from me’.
Hence, (a) is the correct answer.
