In the following quiz I replied with ‘...solamente hubiéramos llegado...’ and it was marked as incorrect. The required answer was just ‘hubiéramos llegado’. Was I in fact wrong to include ‘solamente’? Is the ‘if only’ implied here?

Though it is a bit formal sounding, another way to translate the passive form in English referring to a '"general you", i.e. people in general ', is "ONE must/can...". For example "One must always tell the truth".
I find that helps me differentiate between "you must" - debes (a specific person), and the passive "One must" - se debe (people/individuals in general)
I don’t understand the use of present perfect in telling past events.
In the initial table of conjugation, I feel that ‘estudiar’ is a poor choice of example for the ‘ar’ verbs. Because this particular verb happens to have an ‘i’ before the infinitive ending, it blurs the differentiation between the conjugation of the ‘ar’ verbs and the ‘er’ and ‘ir’ verbs. It would be instantly clearer if a verb such as ‘hablar’ were chosen as the example.
Would it be possible to use "lo que no se pueden" as the phrase refers to "hay oportunidades" elsewhere in the sentence. I don't have much experience of using "lo que" but remember reading one of your lessons about this, and it seems to fit. If not it would be really helpful to know why.
