    Re: Mrs Watson, a kind person

    I assume you have put B in red because it is the one you would choose. If so, you are incorrect. "might have not" would have to be followed by "helped" (and it would not fit the context of the sentence anyway). Try again.

    Note that I have changed your thread title. "Question" is of no use at all. Titles should include some or all of the words you are having trouble with.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Gurpreetgill4u, please wait for the OP to try again, as I requested in post #2. We don't just give people answers here.

    That's OK. Don't worry too much. Just take the time to read previous responses before posting yourself.

    Note my changes to your post above, marked in red. You must leave a space after each full stop.
