    It all comes to money in the end.

    2.Sally showed absolutely no fear when climbing the wall. DISREGARD
    Sally showed disregard to her own safety when climbing the wall.

    Sally showed (total) disregard for her own safety when climbing the wall.

    3.The identity of the murderer was never discovered. WHO
    The police never discovered who the murderer was.


    4."It's not a good idea to call him just yet", said Valerie. AGAINST
    Valery advised me against calling him for a while.

    5.If we leave now, it won't make any difference. MIGHT
    We might not make any difference if we
    leave now.
    It might not make the slightest difference if we (should) leave now.

    6.It was only after i left the office that i realised i had forgotten the file. DID
    Only after i left the office i did remember i had forgotten the file.

    Look at the number of 'i's instead of ' I '.! In 6 and 7. It's irritating.

    If i lose this match, i ...................... down!
