    Lightbulb Passive,relative clauses and used to.

    Hello.

    I have some questions:

    1-Change into passive (Somebody saw him pick up the gun.)

    2-Concerning relative clauses I have two questions:

    A-Can I say "The place that I work in was destroyed" instead of saying "the place where I work was destroyed" ?

    B- Make one sentence from two:
    A few days ago I met someone. (I went with his brother to school.).Is my answer below correct?

    A few days ago , I met someone , whose brother went with me to school.

    Are there any other possible answers ?

    3- What's the difference between used to and I'm used to?


    Thank you.

    1-Change into passive: "Somebody saw him pick up the gun". You try first. We don't do your homework.

    2-Concerning relative clauses I have two questions:

    A-Can I say "The place that I work in was destroyed" instead of saying "the place where I work was destroyed"? You can, but it's not as good.

    B- Make one sentence from two:
    A few days ago I met someone. I went with his brother to school. Is my answer below correct?

    A few days ago I met someone whose brother went with me to school. It's not natural.

    Are there any other possible answers? Plenty. Here's one: 'A few days ago I met someone whose brother I went to school with'.
    You don't seem to have read what I told you in an earlier post:

    Don't leave a space before a full stop, comma or question mark.
