    I will explain them if you have a try first. Say which you'd choose and why. At least rule out the ones you wouldn't choose.

    Re: Help me some sentences

    Oh, I'm sorry! the answer is:
    1a because I thought the tense of sentence is in the pass so I chose it. But now, I think "through" is a preposition so "passing" is right
    2c I thought it was right
    3 I didn't know how to answer it
    4a because I thought this sentence needed an relative pronoun
    Thank for your support!

    "Passing" is right.
    You can have two different tenses in the one sentence.
    They located there (past) to do something in the future/present.
    "the people passing through" means "the people who are passing through".

    2c I thought it was right
    2a "what little money."

    3 I didn't know how to answer it
    3a "which"
    4a because I thought this sentence needed an relative pronoun
    4d. "She spoke ..." There's no relative clause in this sentence.
    Mrs. Stein, the chairwoman, spoke to an enthusiastic audience.
    Thank for your support!
