    Default Dear teachers, I need help with correcting an Ans to a Q?Thx

    I need help with the correct way of answering a question like:

    Q:Would you like to be as clever as Leonardo? Why/ Why not?

    A: No, I wouldn't, because if I am as clever as Leonardo, I have to solve a lot of problems for the people.

    ( Could my dearest teachers here help check the grammar of the above answers? Many thanks, teachers!)

    Thanks for helping ,teacher Ronbee! It's Leonardo da Vinci...^o^

    BTW, could you also help check the following answer to the question above? Many thanks again!

    Another answer:

    Yes, I would like to be as clever as Leonardo because I would have lots of choices on finding jobs, activities. I would then have more chances to succeed in a lot of other things too.

    How about:
    • Yes, I would like to be as clever as Leonardo, because if I were that talented I would have a great deal of choice in what I could do. If I were that smart my chances at success would be great.


    What do you think? Did I change too much?

    :)

    Sorry, teacher Ronbee. What about the following answer? Would you be able to check if it's grammatically correct? Many, many thanks again!

    A: No, I would not because so many people would make me help them do many things, so I would be very busy and would not have any free time.
