ESL/EFL Test #120 "Perfect Tenses", answer 5

I honestly think that the time has come when we should celebrate our success.

Correct answer: (a) has

I don't quite understand why there is "should celebrate" (in the second part of the sentence). Is it a conditional ? Can we say ..when we celebrate..?

Hi Galla,

Should here means ought to.

Can't we use will here? I thought if we use has the answer could have been has come to and remove should

Hello,

I don’t understand why “has” is preferable to “will” in this Question 5. Grammatically, “will” is also correct. To rule out “will”, the only logical reason I think is the title of this test is called Perfect Tense, so other tenses are excluded.

Could you please explain why “has” is preferable to “will”?

Thank you.

Best wishes,
