    Welcome to the forum, siyal.

    We like to help when we can, but we don't help with homework assignments, which is what this appears to be. Your teachers want to know what you can do, not what we can do.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Let me clarify it was not a homework assignment at all. Actually I am preparing for an upcoming test and while attempting past papers I found these sentences confusing. This is why I posted them here thinking I might get some help in this regard.
