    Wendy, I'm very confused as well.

    If you keep your posts regarding this topic in one thread it would be much easier to understand. Please.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Neither of those is correct. Both have "you guys" as the object of a preposition "of" and the subject of a verb "are/were" at the same time. I would just remove the new verbs. :wink:

    Wendy, why don't you try just accepting the originalsentence instead of trying to change it? It's fine in the original.
