    Default expression of agreement or disagreement with help of a Infinitive used as part of a p

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me your expert advice regarding my unassured attempt to express an agreement or disagreement, as the case may be, with the help of a Infinitive used as part of a predicative.

    1.1.Professor X. is such an experienced physician! You really needn’t worry so.
    1.2.Yes, I know, but the disease is so difficult to cure.

    1.1.What a nice little restaurant! So cosy and well-lit.
    1.2.Yes, isn’t it! And the music is pleasant to dance to.

    3.1.If you mean drama, Brecht is a most distinguished playwright. And so up-to-date!
    3.2. I fully agree, but his plays are so difficult to stage.

    4.1. Hello, Jane! Haven’t seen you for ages! Hope you are happy.
    4.2. Oh, yes, of course. But my mother-in-low is a bit hard to get on with.

    5.1. They say you’ve begun learning English. Won’t it take too much of your time?
    5.2. I don’t think so! English isn’t difficult to learn.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Your sentences are fine, but I'm a bit puzzled by the mother-in-law one. Unless she lives with the lady, it's hard to imagine it's the first thing she's mention on seeing a friend she hasn't seen "in ages."
