    Smile correction

    Dear teachers,
    Could you please correct these questions and sentences and tell me the grammer that i've used in the answers is correct or not?

    _All of them are real sutuations:
    _Your teacher is your student now.What are you going to do?(I'm not sure.Maybe I'll hit her)
    _You've found that you're not your parents' real kid.What are you going to do?(I'm going to find my real parents.)
    _You've changed into a boy.What are.......?(I suppose I'll......)
    _You'll be alive just for a week.What are.......?(probably I'll....)
    _You've won $20 million in lottery.What are ......?(I don't know.I guess I'll...)
    _You have to live in a forest for the rest of your life.What are.....?

    I was wondering if could correct these ones as well.
    Who usually does the dishes at home?
    Who spends the most on the phone?
    Who watches tv the the most in your family?
    Who is the most talkative one in your family?
    Who gets home later than the others?
    who does eat the most?

    Thanks in advance

    Who usually does the dishes at home?
    Who spends the most on the phone?Are we talking about money or time?
    Who watches tv --the most in your family?
    Who is the most talkative --in your family?
    Who gets home later than the others?
    who eats the most?

    Thanks in advance

    Of course, this pools thing sounded familiar, but I have just checked and it's only for football and such.

    Can you say in the pools though, correct preposition?

    Would in the lottery be correct?

    Re: correction

    I know. I think in this case he is wrong, and that it is on the lottery when referring to buying a ticket with a number or numbers on it in order to win money.


    "In the lottery of life, he was extremely lucky" is fine.
