    Dear Ozma: When you write to the forum, it is best to use standard English. Therefore, your initial sentence should read: Can you please help me with these?

    1. He hasn't written much recently that's been appreciated by those attracted by this early style.
    words given: little/who
    >He has written very little recently which has been appreciated by those who are attracted by this early style
    This works. You don't need the 'very', but it's fine. It's also not necessary to change 'that' to 'which'.

    2.Not only his appearance but also his manners leave great scope for improvement
    words given:He/man/both/desired
    >He is a man ???? Try starting with, 'He is a man whose...'
    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra
