    [QUOTE=MohamedSobieh;522197]Put the bracketed expressions into the sentences and choose the correct tens[e]. You need to do that before we can help you.

    I'll show you how by doing the first one:
    1. I'm sorry for her. She has had bad lucky all her life.

    Well done. Most of these are correct.
    10 and 11 are a problem. First, you've changed 'this' to 'that' in 11. (Maybe not a problem)
    There are several choices for 10, 11.
    10. I learn a lot in this job; I've learned a lot in this job.
    11.
    I haven't learned much in this job.
    I'm not learning much in this job
    .
    I don't learn much in this job.

    If you change it to 'that job':
    I hadn't learned ...
    I wasn't learning ...
    I didn't learn ...
    "That job" tends to indicate it was in the past, as opposed to "this job" which is the one you have now.
