    Post Is it correct or not?

    Hi ..

    please answer me..

    (2) See you tomorrow at the same time and the same place.

    2 Which is correct?
    (1) Whose is a possessive adjective.
    (2) Whose is a possessive.

    3 Which is correct?
    (1) Present form in the direct speech is changed to the past form in the reported speech.
    (2) Present form in the direct speech changes to the past form in the reported speech.


    4.Is it correct?
    Relative pronouns function as conjunctions and pronouns in the sentence.


    5. Which is correct?
    Today we're going to study 'relative pronouns'
    Today we'll study 'relative pronouns'.

    6 Are they correct?
    (1) I'll make a list of relative pronouns and then we're looking at how to use them.
    (2) I'll make a list of relative pronouns and then let's look at how to use them


    7 What is the difference between them?

    8. Are they correct?
    (1) Turn in your paper on Friday.

    1 Which is correct or better ?
    (1) See you tomorrow same time same place. Informal/colloquial.
    (2) See you tomorrow at the same time and the same place. Very formal
    Which is better depends on the situation and context.

    2 Which is correct?
    (1) Whose is a possessive adjective.
    (2) Whose is a possessive.
    Both.

    3 Which is correct?
    (1) Present form in the direct speech is changed to the past form in the reported speech.
    (2) Present form in the direct speech changes to the past form in the reported speech.
    You do not need "the" before "direct speech/reported speech".
    "The present tense..."

    The present tense in direct speech changes/is changed to the past in reported speech.

    4.Is it correct?
    Relative pronouns function as conjunctions and pronouns in the sentence.
    Yes


    5. Which is correct?
    Today we're going to study 'relative pronouns'
    Today we'll study 'relative pronouns'.
    Both are correct

    6 Are they correct?
    (1) I'll make a list of relative pronouns, and then we're looking at how to use them.
    (2) I'll make a list of relative pronouns and then let's look at how to use them
    #1>> I'll make a list of relative pronouns. Then we will look at how to use them


    7 What is the difference between them?
    (1)I want you to write your introduction.
    (2)I want you to write out your introduction.
    #1 = you instruct a person to write an introduction
    #2 = you instruct a person to write out [at length and probably by hand] an introduction.

    8. Are they correct?
    (1) Turn in your paper on Friday.
    (2) Present your paper on Friday.
    Is "present" is used the same meaning as "turn in"?
    If so, how can we know whether "present" means "turn in" or talking to students with his paper in class? Present also means talking to other students with his paper in fron of in class, doesn't it?

    Both are correct -
    #1 =The paper is to be handed in
    #2 = the paper is to be presented to the class (that's what I would understand, anyhow)


    Thanks for reading long writing.
