    Post Please correct sentences

    Dear teachers,
    Can you please check and see if my corrections are appropriate, if not, please correct them for me. Thanks in advance!

    Original: "If you were supposed to meet a friend at three o'clock, but you come to the place at quarter after three, then, you are late."

    correction: "If you were supposed to meet a friend at three o'clock, but you came at a quarter after three, then, you were late."

    correction: "If you were supposed to meet a friend at three o'clock, but you came at a quarter after three, then, you were late."

    Alternatives

    1. If you were supposed to meet a friend at three o'clock, but you arrived at quater past three, then you were late.

    If you don't want to use the word "arrived" then try:

    2.
    If you were supposed to meet a friend at three o'clock, but you came at quater past three, then you were late.

    but it is not as nice.

    Make sure it's quater past three! A quater after three is very 19th century.
