    Re: which anwser is correct?

    Well, thanks. I have to choose only one correct answer, so probably I should have asked " Which answer is better?"

    5- I really appreciate ___ to help me, but i am sure that i will be able to manage by myself.
    (a) your offering Correct
    (b) that you offer
    (c) that you are offering
    6- He didn't seem to mind ____ TV while he was trying to study.
    (a) that they watch
    (b) them watching
    (c) their watching Correct
    (d) them to watch

    I wonder what olj's answers might have been?
    I wonder how much anyone learns having it all done for them? - even when

    .. and out they pop!

    I believe we should encourage posters to present their attempts at such assignments before we rush in with all the answers. No one learns that way.

    Re: which anwser is correct?

    Thanks David L. I agree. I already took this exam two days ago. It was an exam of 60 questions all with four suggested answers, and now I'm only asking about those questions that I really wasn't sure about. Anyway, now I know that my answers of the first four questions were correct (but not of the fifth and the sixth).

    It's a good idea to let us know that you are checking up after the event when you are posting - otherwise, it feels like we are doing someone's homework for them...and not being fair to their teacher, who is getting the wrong idea as to the level of English proficiency of their student!
