but it says

c) took

    "Used to" suggests it was a habitual action.

  • looks the same to me, but since PiuPiu hasn't been on the site in 3 years and never made an account on English Language Learners I think the chance of getting a reply is close to zero.

1 Answer 1


"Used to take" implies that he did it repeatedly but if it's referring to a specific incident (the first game) then it only have happened once.

    Used to X can't be used if X only happened once.
