    ***** A NON-TEACHER's COMMENT *****


    (1) I know that everyone here at usingenglish. com welcomes

    you.

    (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.


    Respectfully yours,


    James
