Two choices for subjunctive in the quiz?

Hi,

I thought I had answered this correctly by choosing the subjunctive of terminar: termine. But it was marked wrong with what I think is just another variation on subjunctive for terminar: terminase. (See below.)

Am I wrong? What am I missing here?

Thanks!

Termine is the present subjunctive. The statement is in the past tense so we use the imperfect subjunctive

Hola Melissa

If you have a look again at the part in the lesson with title "In reported speech" (by the end) which is what we have in this sentence "Dijeron que nos pagarían.... you will see an explanation to this.
