    grammar

    Hello

    Are these sentences correct?

    Meet Alice, will you?
    Having written the essay she made only one mistake
    I know I should call but I was tied up at the meeting.
    I am sorry to cause you this inconvenience.

    thank you

    Meet Alice, will you? (Could be "an order" in tone)
    Meet Alice, won't you? (A suggestion with a softer tone)
    Having written the essay she made only one mistake
    I know I should call but I was tied up at the meeting.
    I am sorry to cause you this inconvenience.(Normally, we say, " I am sorry for the inconvenience caused or that I have caused you.")

    thank you
