    Perhaps we should give people a chance to suggest their own answers first.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Tanzilia, we don't just provide homework answers. You should make your own effort first. Note that bluewortex didn't know that, as it was his or her first post and should have been headed Not a teacher. It would help if you gave a different number to each sentence.

    Bluewortex, welcome to the forums. Please read the Forum Guidelines – especially this extract:

    About Replying to Posts:

    You are welcome to answer questions posted in the Ask a Teacher forum as long as your suggestions, help, and advice reflect a good understanding of the English language. If you are not a teacher, you will need to state that clearly at the top of your post.

    @Rover

    Thank you for the welcome.
    I apologise for the misstep, must have missed that line in the forum guidelines.
    Will be paying more attention to the rules.

    Cheers
