    John looked as if

    I have tried to use "as if" in my sentences. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    1. John looked as if he were full of confidence, but he was a shy and insecure man
    2. The morning was bright, and it looked as if it would be a beautiful day.
    3. The woman screamed as if someone were attacking her, although the beach was empty.
    4. The teenager behaved as if he was going to steal the car, and the owner asked him to go away, or he was going to call the police.

    Re: John looked as if

    "as if" is used correctly in all 4.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: John looked as if

    Your uses of "as if" are all fine. The first sentence needs a period/full stop at the end.
