@MK “etw. verbrechen” does not mean “to break” but “to commit sth” or in some cases “to break the law”.

@Dan Hey, I'm german, too. And you're right. At question 2, there's no correct answer. At question 4, there's also no correct answer. But I also think, German is really hard to learn. And all the other questions were hard and correct!!! So you're very good!!!

( I hope, my grammar in this comment is right ;) )

I'm german and i did this test because I'm bored. There's a few things i need to correct:
question 2: correct would be 'weil ich die Stadt besuchen konnte'
question 4: correct would be ' wenn der Brief geschrieben wird'
I know that german is very hard to learn and you already got some very complicated structures right. Keep going!

"Weil" is a conjunction that pushes the verb to the end of the sentence, so the second choice with "habe" at the end is the only grammatically correct answer, but all the choices are wrong because of the use of können. You would conjugate that verb unless besuchen was in the past. Also, "verbrechen" means to break. If you wanted to say the noun, you should have capatilzed the word.

For a few of the "which sentence is grammatically correct" questions, all the choices were wrong...
When there's a motile verb, like will (werden) or can (konnen), that verb is ALWAYS directly after the first subject (Ich, du, etc.) and then the other normal verb gets put at the end of the sentence in its infinitive form.
Example: Ich werde meine Hausaufgaben machen.
