B. can ...will be doing
C. could...would do
D. could...will do

Question 5 : We ___ the examination room unless the teachers ___ us to do so.

Question 6 : If we ___ our homework a little sooner, we ___ earlier.

Haha! Awesome ^^, I wish my homework was like this.. Allthough "If I___ turn back time, I ___ more studying." has no right answers, did u notice? I think the answer, with a Norwegian study attitude would be "could/would probably not do" ;)

"I ___ the police, if I ___ a rapist." HAHAHA ^^, All boys are bad, and all boys are rapists ;)
