    i'm not sure if i do the right

    I have to rewrite these sentences without changing meaning and i have to start with THE WORDS GIVEN

    I regret shouting at the children
    I WISH I hadn't shouted to the children


    Who lent you the money to buy that sweater?-->too difficult..
    WHO DID YOU....


    It's possible that she didn't hear what i said
    SHE MIGHT hadn't heard what i said

    This would have been perfect if you hadn't changed "at" to "to"!
    I wish I hadn't shouted at the children.

    I don't just want to give you the answer. What is the opposite of lend? Do you know?

    Almost. She might NOT HAVE HEARD what I said.
    See above.
