hammered two nails in the closet wall/drove the nail into the wall/knock nails in
Would you be kind enough to share with me your opinion concerning the plausibility of the following sentences?
She had hammered two nails in the closet wall on which to hang her swamp boots.
You know you are not allowed to knock nails in those walls,”Mariam said impatiently. “They crumble. Don’t keep on about it, Ellen, I’ve said no.”
He drove the nail into the wall. They found that a nail had been driven through a gas pipe, thus causing a leakage of gas.
Though you have driven in some more nails, I’m afraid the shelf will not hold the weight of all those books.
He hung the bag up on the nail.
He drove the nail into the pine tree, holding it close and hitting it gently with the flat of the axe.
When I woke the next morning…he has gone. I found his note pinned on the sliding door.
He has put new sheets of hardboard on all the walls and pinned pictures on them.
Thumb-tacked to the door-frame were photos of his family.
Thank you for your efforts.
