    Please help me with these transformations

    The first task is to rewrite each sentence using the word given and do not alter it:
    1. You're far more practical than I am. (Nowhere)
    2. There is no need to telephone me when you arrive. (Bother)
    3. The firm is going to raise everybody's salary (Given)
    This is my answer: Everybody is going to be given higher salary
    The second is to rewrite each sentence as directed without changing the original meaning:
    1. I do not know Russian --> I have ...
    This is my own answer: I have no knowledge of Russian
    2. The schedule has been changed --> They have made ...
    This is my own answer: They have made changes in the schedule
    3. A terrible fire destroyed most of the forest. --> The destruction ...
    This is my own answer: The destruction of the forest was caused by a terrible fire

    This is my answer: Everybody is going to be given a higher salary [What about #1 and #2?]

    This is my own answer: I have no knowledge of Russian

    2. The schedule has been changed --> They have made ...
    This is my own answer: They have made changes in the schedule OR to the schedule

    3. A terrible fire destroyed most of the forest. --> The destruction ...
    This is my own answer: The destruction of the forest was caused by a terrible fire
