    Where did you find these questions?

    Re: In t__ __ __l,

    I'm pretty sure that you can work out #1.
    #2 doesn't make any sense to me as it stands. Are you sure the word "been" was in the original? And why is the word "ground" in brackets at the end?

    Edit: Ah, I think I've worked it out. Are the words in brackets the words you have thought of so far? If so, "ground" is wrong. There is a phrase "to fall to ------", meaning "to disintegrate". Have you looked for idioms or similar with "to fall to" in?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: In t__ __ __l,

    I am not a teacher but I would say, "Linda called off her picknic on account of the bad weather."

    The sentence "picnic have been fallen to the ground because of the weather" seems like an attempt to translate a steady phrase used in a foreign language into English which often does not work at all but I may be wrong.

    Re: In t__ __ __l,

    Even though "total" is the only one that works, it's not appropriate.
    If she worked all night, she worked all night.
    If she worked on it over the course of a week, then you might say "In total, she worked 12 hours on it."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Ah, that one.
    I had it, but I threw it away many years ago.
