Hi,

Excuses me, there's something wrong with the typing "silmply". Isn't there?
It makes me hesitate when making a right choice because I focus more on the wrong "silmply" than the verb "forget".

Anyway, thanks a lot.

Hi Torsten,

Look, I often hear other people say "I forget", and I'm a little confused-isn't it should be said in past tense? (I forgot)
Thanks!

Sevich, Depends upon the context of the sentence.

" I forget things so easily nowadays."

" I've forgotten my door-keys."

" He forgot it was my birthday."

Context determines which to use.

Kitos.

Why use forget instead of forgot? It's so confusing?

He forgot it was my birthday - notice 'was' -- past tense, therefore 'to forget' needs to be in the past tense too!

I forget - present tense.
I forgot - past tense.

It means you would predict it. You're unlikely to ever need to use that expression.

Hi
I could choose the correct answer just by comparing 4 multipy answers but
I couldnt understand the gist of the question!
Mike havent receved his bill ( something like cost) and asks his friend what should you do?!
But i think he should ask his friend what should i do at this posotion?! Am i right teachers?:(
And in my idea his friend was supposed to say :u'd better forget it
please help me to understand becouse i'm really confused
