Typo in the step-through options

Should “il l’interrompait” be “il l’interromprait”?

Asked 3 years ago
Chris W.C1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

No, the imperfect tense, interrompait, is correct here. The "would" in the English text isn't a pointer to the conditional but rather stresses the fact that his interrupting was a repetitive action.
