    Question Please check these answers

    Correct the Verb:
    ----the children ----(play) in the garden all day yesterday?
    Were the children playing in the garden all day yesterday?

    They ---------(drive) for two hours when the car broke down.
    had been driving

    If your parents (would let-let) you, would you get a dog?

    If he ------ (not do)his work on time, the teacher would be angry.
    If he does not do his work on time, the teacher would be angry. (Though it's the 2nd case, I used the present simple, is it acceptable?)

    If you didn't have so much work, ------- (invite) you out.
    If you didn't have so much work, I would invite you.

    The meal------(prepare) while we were talking.
    was being prepared (had been prepared is also allright?)



    Give an advice:
    I found a lost dog.
    If I were you, I would tell the police.

    I can't sleep because I'm afraid of the dark.
    Were I in your shoes, I would turn on the lamp.



    Turn into reported speech:
    You mustn't leave the lights on all night.
    Lights must not be left on all night.


    Rewrite into direct speech:
    Daniel said he liked the film he had seen the previous day.
    Daniel said, "I liked (like?) the film I saw yesterday."

    Betty asked me to wash the car for her.
    "Would you wash the dishes for me?" Betty asked.

    My friend told me to hurry up.
    My friend said to (told?) me, "Hurry up!"



    He saw a cat -----as big as a dog. Which is better(that\which)?



    Many Thanks in Advance.
