    Cool Assignment/Work/Errands/chores?

    Hello amigos!

    1) I'll go shopping when I've done my Assignment/Work/Errands/chores .
    2) Ive got a few photo assignment/work/errands/chores to do during my stay in Italy.
    3) After school Tom runs Assignment/Work/Errands/chores for his father.

    Which one(s) is the more appropriate in the samples above? Id be quite thankful to the ones who could explain me by exemplifying the nuances among them:)

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    Sam

    1. Could be any of them.
    2. assignments
    3. errands

    (Originally, I had "chores" for number 3. We "run" errands, but "do" chores. )

    Exclamation Re: Assignment/Work/Errands/chores?

    I am not a professional teacher. The first sentence seems to be OK. The words Assignment/Work/Errands/chores are all nouns and act as object of the verb 'do'. There is nothing wrong in the second sentence except that the words errands/chores do not match with the noun 'photo'. The third sentence is also correct as all the words act as object of the verb 'run'. How evever in my openion the first sentence is more appropriate.

    We run errands but not assigments, work or chores.

    1. You can choose any of them
    2. Sure it is "Work"
    3. 100% "Errands"
