    All of your answers are right -- except tricky Number 6.

    The verb "lie" means to recline. Note the principle parts:

    I will lie down this afternoon.

    My mother is lying down and can't be disturbed.

    Yesterday I lay down for an hour.

    I have lain on that couch many times.

    The verb "lay" means to put or place.

    I always lay my keys on the mantle.

    She is laying her keys on the mantle.

    I laid my keys on the mantle yesterday.

    I have laid my keys on the mantle for years.

    What do you think is the correct answer for 6?
