    Re: Rewrite

    Hi,
    This is your assignment not ours.
    Rather than ordering us to do it, it would be nice if you tried first and asked for our opinion.


    For the record, I can't figure out how to write the sentence using the phrase given and keep the same meaning.
    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.

    I'd suggest: Since you have to use an adverbial component of time, strip off all the time adverbials from the sentence, see what you have left, and make a sentence out of that and 'at the moment'.

    PS: Note that we don't do homework. You can read this is the box at the top of the page.

    Re: Rewrite

    Every day Adel reads the newspaper before breakfast.

    Rewrite this sentence using ( at the moment)

    How about this?
    At the moment, Adel is reading the newspaper.
    At the moment, Adel is not reading the newspaper.
