Put the correct tense in the blank.
I ...........my son the money for that last week
A. gave   b. Given   c. have given d. was given.
Thanks in advance.

A. gave is the answer since it is an action that happened in the past at a specific time - we KNOW WHEN - last week.
B. Given cannot stand on its own as a tense.
C. Have given connects the past with the present or refers to an action that happened at an unspecific time in the past.
D. Was given is Past Simple Passive and is not suitable here since the sentence is in active voice.

gave - is the only possible answer here- unless "had given" was an option.
