1. Question
I thought she will have visited me by now, but she hasn’t.
Ans: 4
‘would have visited’ is the correct use in place of ‘will have visited’ as reporting verb ‘thought’ is in past tense. For past events, ‘would’ is used to indicate something that was in the future at that point in time, but is not necessarily in the future right now.
2. Question

While he was crossing the road, the thought had struck him that he had forgotten to carry the keys along.

Ans: 3
‘struck him’ is the correct use in place of ‘had struck him’ as past continuous tense is used for incident occurring in past while simple past tense is used for the incident happening in between the previous incident.
Ex. While I was locking up the door, Mohan arrived.
