    Re: Rewrite

    nado, that's not a question. That's an order. That's a demand.

    A question would be "Would you help me rewrite this sentence, please?"

    However, even if you'd asked that question (instead of giving us this order), we would say "You need to try to do this yourself first."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    At first,I'll say,i m so sorry if you get that feeling.
    Believe me,I' m not to order.
    I just copied the question as it is written.
    It is written this way,Rewrite.
    Forgive me if you get it badly
    sorry again

    Re: Rewrite

    nado, three things:

    1. It doesn't matter how your assignment book puts it. When you ask us for help, you ASK us.
    2. You still need to try to do this yourself first.
    3. I can't think of a natural way to rewrite the question using the word "attended'!

    Could it be:

    I do not mind having attended the party. - meaning the party is over, I have attended it.

    not a teacher
