    Help...

    While some authority from Finland Embassy was replying the questions,he/she avoided to comment about ambassador's attitude.The authority seemed angry because of Turkish guests leaving reception late.

    Is there anything to be corrected in these sentences.

    While some authority from THE FINNISH Embassy was replying TO the questions, S/HE AVOIDED COMMENTING ON the ambassador's attitude. THE SPEAKER seemed MORE angry because of SOME Turkish guests leaving THE reception late.

    You can say 'spokesperson' instead of 'authority'.

    I chose 'more' to highlight the fact that s/he did not comment at all on the attitude of the ambassador. They were MORE interested in the fact that THE Turkish guests were late leaving the reception.
