    Thanks very much.....the reason why I was asking is that the options which you had in blue and said they were correct, our English teacher (non native english speaker of course) told us that those options were wrong.....cant wait to show her this

    When you do, ask your teacher for his/her reasons for saying they are wrong. There may be one that we are not aware of

    She explained why her possibilities are correct. And ruled the other because they are not correct. Why? Because they are simply not. (and this is always her explanation. cool teacher, huh?)
