    Re: “Find a good way”

    I would rewrite all but the first sentence as follows.

    2. The chances of her breaking this record are slim.

    3. I will come up with a good idea for tidying (up) this place.

    4. I will find a good way to tidy (up) this place.

    Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.

    Above, in red, I have shown how I would word both.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
