    Sorry for the delayed answer. I didn't see your question yesterday evening. (I guess I logged out before you posted it.)

    Yes, I am a teacher. Why?

    Well, I did cut out this sentence... no need to repeat a verb, since the second sentence already informs tells us that "the budgie disappeared two days ago", right?
    Please note my corrections above.
    I don't understand the blue underlined section at all.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    About the blue underlined section: I meant that I "cut out this sentence" from the original exercise (check post #5), because it was supposed to be completed with the same verb as the second sentence, even though in a different tense.
