    please, help me with these sentences

    Hi,
    I' d like to know if it ok to say:

    1)I think that I'll be able to do all exercises of today easily, because I already know these things

    2) I think I can easily do all of today's exercises, because I know these things by now

    3) Good morning, could you tell me where the historical center (I mean the old town center) is, please? are there any buses to get to it?


    Can you correct them, please?

    Thanks
    Rip

    Really? can I say all exercises nof today? or should I say "all THE exercises of today"?

    And can I say "All of today's exercises"?

    Would you use sentences like those I wrote, or would you tell the same thing in another way?
    Thanks a lot

    2) and 3) are OK with the small changes in 3). Note: In BrE it's "centre".

    "All exercises" or "all the exercises" or "all of today's exercises" are OK, REALLY! And I don't know which I would use depending on the situation or circumstances.
