Hi Peter,wish you are doing the pest. I got confused with below, would appreciate you to clarify.

In above task, sentence number 5 stated : we saw a great movie last week, i believe the right is to say you should have CAME instead of COME with us. please advice and thank you in advince.

Moustafa Raad

Hi Moustafa,

come is correct here, but it's not the first form (infinitive) - it's the third form (past participle). come is an irregular verb: come, came, come. After should have, it's the third form, which looks the same as the first.
