    Smile Re: was/were question

    One similar sentence also for making a question ?

    The Ten commandments and the prophets weren't enough for us.

    My work.
    Weren't the Ten commandments and the prophets enough for us.

    Is it OK. If not please correct me.

    One more question. I like to know,
    What is the negative form of the word 'said' ?

    Is it 'not said' or 'didn't say' ?

    For example.
    He not said that. or He didn't say that.

    Which is correct ?

    thanks
