    Synthesis

    I would like to ask this: Is this the same?

    Question: All the shops close at ten at night. The restaurant is still open at that time.

    My answer was: All the shops except the restaurant close at ten at night.

    The answer was: All the shops close at ten at night except the restaurant.

    Is my answer the same as the model?

    Yes. In your answer, except is a conjunction (it links two phrases); in the other answer, except is a preposition.
