Please see above.Task 1 - Put the sentences into passive.
(1) They awarded Tony the first prize in the essay competition.
(5) They told me to sit down and wait.
(1) Tony has been awarded with the first prize in the essay competition. Your teacher is right.
"They awarded Tony..." becomes "Tony was awarded."
"They have awarded Tony.." would be "Tony has been awarded."
(5) I have been told to sit down and wait.
Same. They told me = I was told.
They have told me = I have been told.
She said, it has to be "was" instead of "has been" in both sentences. I earned no points for both sentences, but is it just a serious mistake or is it possibly right?
Your choice of tense is incorrect - this is not a matter of a teacher being overly picky.
And there is another thing I'm frustrated about.
Task 3 - Translate into English.
It's difficult to describe it unless you can't speak German, but I'll try it anyway.
Here is my approach:
They requested him not coming to late.
The only thing I want to know here is if this sentence is right or wrong. It's not right, but I'm not sure what it should be.
They requested that he not come in too late?
Thanks in advance!
