    Default rephrasing of a few sentences 2

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my attempt to rephrase the following sentences?

    1.1.We assumed that they would not jump to random conclusion.
    1.2.We took for granted that they would not jump to hasty (inconsiderate) conclusion.

    2.1. She enjoys being in the limelight.
    2.2. She enjoys being in the center of attention.

    3.1. It was a most thrilling trip, so it made up for the boring time we’d been having.
    3.2. It was a most exciting trip, so it compensated the boring time we’d been having.

    4.1. They drew up elaborate plans for the ceremony.
    4.2. They drew up carefully worked out plans for the ceremony.

    5.1. All the details are elaborated in the scheme.
    5.2. All the details are worked out in the scheme.

    6.1. The thought passed through my mind that perhaps I was mistaken.
    6.2. It occurred to me that perhaps I was mistaken.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    The rest are acceptable.
