    Re: Please have a look.

    I am sorry Anglika. I forgot to write the questions.These are the questions:

    Q1. How do we know that the girls woke up early?
    A1. We know that the girls woke up early as it is mentioned that they saw the sun rising.
    Q2. What did the girls try to catch?
    A2. The girls tried to catch some fishes when they approached a river.

    Is it correct to say "Have pity on me"?

    Why is "Can do more better" incorrect?

    A2. The girls tried to catch some fishes when they approached a river. Think through the logic of your sentence. How can you catch something when you are approaching a river, and who in your sentence is approaching a river.

    Is it correct to say "Have pity on me"? It is grammatically fine - I don't think you will hear it commonly said.

    Why is "Can do more better" incorrect? You do not use "more" with a comparative as a general rule.
