the server suggests that all guests would try the homemade chocolate fudge cake now when I first when I read this and I have the word wood here when I see the server suggest that all guests would try the homemade chocolate fudge cake I'm expecting it well under what conditions would they would they try so I'm expecting to see something would try the the homemade chocolate fudge cake if such-and-such happened but that's not what they're telling us well we're really saying is that the server suggests that guests try the homemade chocolate fudge cake so I definitely don't want to keep it the way it is if if we said tried then that would be the past tense the server suggests that all guests tried the homemade chocolate fudge cake now that would imply that the server suggesting that in the past all the guests had tried the homemade chocolate fudge game but that's not that's not the intent of the sentence he's the server suggesting that people try the homemade chocolate fudge cake so I'm going to get rid of that one and I keep saying in and we see the best choice 3 the server suggests that all guests try the homemade chocolate fudge cake this is exactly what we want the server is making a suggestion it's not a conditional it's not something in the past and then we can rule out this last one we'll try this is this is kind of the server if we replace we'll try this would be the server predicting something about the future which isn't the intent of the sentence the server suggests that all guests will try the homemade chocolate fudge cake so I think this one is off too so definitely like that choice
