17. Which sentence contains a verb in the simple past tense?
A. She has obeyed her father.
B. She obeyed her father.
C. She obeys her father.
D. She had obeyed her father.
"obeyed" is the simple past tense form of "obey" -- but if it's used with a helping verb (is, was, has, have, etc.), it's in another tense or voice.
So which sentence has the past tense form used WITHOUT a helping verb?
