    -The FBI is/are (?)…
    -The FBI agents in order to make him speak, they try to frighten him7The FBI agents try to frighten him in order to make him speak
    -She knew what they have told him, and some things/some of the things (?) were not true
    -He was sick and slept lots of hours
    -She was violent with him
    -He became/went into a shock
    -Too many drugs and too much alcohol
    -He entered and asked her something
