    Welcome to the forum, niknikonavoi.

    This looks like your homework, which we don't do.

    Re: Modals

    In the first one a), c) and d) all work. None of the options given in the second one work.

    Re: Modals

    Does 'to make the whole house upside-down' work?

    Re: Modals

    "to turn the whole house upside-down" is the natural way of saying it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Modals

    The construction is 'to make something + adjective'. Why doesn't it work?

    Re: Modals

    In my opinion, learners need to stop memorizing templates such as "make something + adjective". They don't always work in real English.
