    paraphrasing of six sentences

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to review my paraphrasing of the following using words and word combination from the next sentences?


    1.1. He will have to study hard to compensate for the lessons he has missed.
    1.2. He will have to study hard to make up for the lessons he has missed.

    2.1. He was spotlessly attired.
    2.2. He was immaculately dressed.

    3.1. I decided to save up for the holidays.
    3.2. I decided to set some money aside.

    4.1. Don’t bother about that, we shall do it next time.
    4.2. Never mind, we shall do it next time.

    5.1. Circumstances forced him to do such a thing.
    5.2. He was driven (by circumstances) to do such a things.

    6.1. Their lively conversation attracted our attention.
    6.2. Their animated conversation attracted our attention.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards

    V.

    All these are correct.

    4.1. Donít bother about that, we shall do it next time.
    4.2.
    Never mind, we shall do it next time. This is a very common idiom, and can be used for lots of circumstances.
