    Re: are these sentences correct

    I can say that 4 and 7 are correct. The conditionals are well used.Perhaps I'm wrong but I think they are ok
    About 1,2 and 3 I can not say much.

    kisses

    Re: are these sentences correct

    I'd change 3:

    (3)- He is rich and this is known to all.

    6) doesn't really work- you cxan mix conditionals in this way, but the logic of this one doesn't really work, unless having been a minister in the past qualifies for a position now you are no longer one.
