Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to explain to us with sufficient conviction the correctness of
the following sentences?
1. After supper Sir Pitt Crawley began to smoke his pipe, and producing a huge mass of
papers began reading them and putting them in order.
2. How people began smoking.
3. He began to worry because it was five minutes after eight.
4. People began to see what geese they were making of themselves.
5. He began speaking with confidence.
6. They, too, began to hop, to dance, to limp and to curse.
7. She was already beginning to droop like a flower that wants water.
8. One morning the telegraph key began clicking.
9. His thoughts began fighting round the top of his head.
Thank you for your efforts.
