    Hi Casiopeea

    Thank you for helping me.
    Are the following particles correct?

    I `ve tried to correct them but I am not so sure that everything is right.

    1.I keep up with current affairs by reading newspapers.
    2. All passengers got ready to get off the train as it pulled up to the station.
    3. You mustn`t give in to temptation .
    4. They were held up in by heavy traffic.[should I use "by" together with the other two particles?]
    5. I can`t vouch for him; I have never met him.
    6. She had no intention of going to meet him, though she said she would
    7.He claimed that he was not guilty of committing the crime. [or "with"?]
    8. The soldier was presented with a medal after the war.

    Thank you very much

    Regards
