Question with an assignment.

Instructions: Complete the sentences with the correct forms of the verbs in brackets. Use the Past Simple, Past Perfect Simple, Past Perfect Continuous.

  1. Mum had lunch and then (a) ____ (lie down) for a few minutes as she ____ (not feel) well all day.

I wrote,

Mum had lunch and then lay down for a few minutes as she hadn’t felt well all day.

However, I was marked as wrong by my teacher for “hadn’t felt well”. I feel like both are correct. Was I wrong?

  • I agree. Hadn't been feeling well would be the most likely, but hadn't felt well would also be perfectly possible. – Kate Bunting Apr 23 at 11:56
