***** A NON-TEACHER's COMMENT *****
(1) I know that everyone here at usingenglish. com welcomes
(2) I have learned that the teachers want people to try answering
the questions first. Then they will check your answers. OK?
(3) I hope the teachers do not get angry with me if I try to help
you with the first two.
No.1. I have a question. So maybe something like:
There is something that I do not know. (The words "that I do not know" are called an adjective clause because they explain the word "something.")
No.2 . He can't trust anyone. So maybe something like:
There is no one whom/who/that he can trust.
For regular English, "who" or "that" is OK. (Personally, I would never use
"that.") For "perfect" book English, I strongly
recommend that you use "whom." Don't worry about this. When
you learn more English, you can study more about who/whom.
(4) Why don't you try to answer the last two questions. Then
someone here will be delighted to check your answers.
