Hello Maneesh,

The correct answer is in the present simple (accept), just as the first verb in the phrase (acknowledge) is. In performative language, i.e. when the words we say are an action (e.g. 'I promise to do it', 'I proclaim you man and wife...'), the present simple is usually used, as in this sentence.

Hi, everyone! My first job was in Design office, where I worked as a Design Engineer. That was years ago, when we didn't have any computers and printers in our office, so I spent much time drowing on big sheets of paper during my working days. It was not boring because I liked to design and drow constructions. It seemed to me I earned enough money because it was first money which I can spend on myself. But I understood later I have got scanty salary!

Thank British Council for great lessons! I hope I'll be able to improve my English with you.
