This is a question from the entrance exam of a certain university in Tokyo. You are supposed to choose the most appropriate phrase out of the four, but it confuses me.
- Mrs. Johnson tells me that it (will take/ takes/ must take/ has taken) two more months to complete the project.
I guess the correct answer will be 1, will take. However, I don't understand why the others are incorrect. Would you please kindly tell me what is wrong with the other three?
