    ... he had no money for a bus

    I'm not sure with my answers. If mine are wrong, please suggest me the correct ones.

    1. I'm sure you ... him. His latest book ... out at the end of this week.
    A. like/ comes B. will like/ coming C. like/ is going to come D. are going to like/ is coming

    2. ... he had no money for a bus, he had to walk all the way home.
    A. For B. Thus C. So D.Such

    3. Don’t talk _ _ _ _ that to me! (fill in a word with 4 letters) is "hard" suitable?

    Re: ... he had no money for a bus

    If this were homework, I would ask my teacher.
    I found these sentences in an online test that let me know my points only. I write down these sentences because I'm not sure. I can't find the answers any where so I am here to ask you. I don't trust anyone but native English speakers. Help me please!

    Re: ... he had no money for a bus

    1. D.

    2. I don't like any of the answers. I would use "because" or "since" or maybe "as".

    3. "Hard" doesn't work. I would choose "like".

    Re: ... he had no money for a bus

    Ron, the second sentence is a comma splice.

    Re: ... he had no money for a bus

    Class, Mike called my attention to an error in my post, and my initial reaction was: "What! What do you mean? I don't make that kind of mistake." Then I noticed that the error was in the original sentence by the OP, and to fix the comma splice I could do one of two things. I picked one. What was the other possibility? (Extra marks for the one who gets it right. )
