Hi! I always wanna learn more about grammar, but I also like the informal ones! Tee-hee. These are my questions: (Please check the grammar)
1. Can you help me (to) do this? (?) Is “to” necessary?
2. Everyone has (its/his/their) own secret.
(?) Which one is correct, “its”,”his” or “their”?
3. I heard that this game (is/was) fun.
(?) Because “heard” is in the past, so do I need to change the ‘verb’ behind into past?
4. Which one is more suitable, “the commonest” or “the most common”?
5. What is the meaning of “You gotta get it down”?
6. Susan, Anton, or Tony (is/are) allowed to come.
(?) Which one is correct, "is" or "are"?
Re: Grammar problem
1. Can you help me do this? - the preposition to is not necessary.
