    Exclamation Three questions

    Hello! Help me please:

    a) The practice of sports make/makes them tired.? (which is right?)

    b) What page is this exercise at? (Is my question right?)

    c) Don't distract yourself. (Do I need to use the reflexive pronoun here?)

    Thanks.

    Re: Three questions

    a)- I's use the singular, but I'd say 'Practising sports makes them tired'. (Americans would say 'practicing'.)
    b)- on
    c)You would need the refelexive pronoun, but 'don't get distracted' sounds more natural to me.
