table at the drawing room (b) _____ _____

  • A. Mine: “Mine” is used when the object one is talking about has already been mentioned and not when it is described for the first time. So, the correct word is ‘my’.
  • B. At : “At” is used with time and not with rooms. So, the correct word is ‘in’.
  • C. Till: “Till” is not used when the end location is specified. So, the correct word is ‘to’.
  • D. Got: “Got” is used with past tense and not with present or future tense. So, the correct word is ‘get’.

Thus the correct paragraph is

Could you do something for me? I have left my blue bag on the table in the drawing room. Please go to my house tomorrow and get it from my mother.
