    Default paraphrasing of words and word combinations 3

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to revise my paraphrasing of the bolded words and word combinations from the following sentences?

    1.1. Some qualifications serve to bar the blacks from voting.
    1.2. Some qualifications serve to deprive the blacks of voting.

    2.1. It was raining and the fire got extinguished.
    2.2. It was raining and the fire broke up.

    3.1. When the price is paid down at the time of the purchase it is usually said that you pay ready money.
    3.2. When the price is paid down at the time of the purchase it is usually said that you buy for cash.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    "To bar" someone from something means to prevent them from doing it.

    2.1. It was raining and the fire got extinguished.
    2.2. It was raining and the fire broke up.

    Something that is extinguished is put out or has gone out.

    3.1. When the price is paid down at the time of the purchase it is usually said that you pay ready money.
    3.2. When the price is paid down at the time of the purchase it is usually said that you buy for cash.

    Yes.


    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,
