    Question Transformations!

    Hello everyone! I've got trouble doing transformations with inversions. So i'd like to ask you:
    1. Do we go one tense back when we do transformations with No sooner and Hardly? If so, in which cases?
    2. Also, when we have transformations with Not Until, what happens- is there any change in the tense?
    3. What tense is used when we have sentences with "By the time..." ?
    PS I'M ASKING YOU WITHOUT GIVING ANY EXAMPLES, SO SORRY ABOUT IT, BUT I'M PRACTICING FOR AN OLYMPIAD AND IF YOU HAVE SOME EXAMPLES PLEASE POST! I'D BE REALLY THANKFUL By the way, do you know any site where i can practice transformations with only the word given.
    Thanks in advance, xoxo

    Re: Transformations!

    If you are practising for an olympiad, I would have thought that the chance to try a couple of examples and have them corrected (if necessary) with comments would have been beneficial.

    I have to say that I consider it a little cheeky for you not to be prepared to give up the time for us to have something to work on, but to be happy for us to give up our time to help you.
