    Try writing a sentence using 'has been issued' .

    2.I can't work because Joey won't leave me alone! KEEPS
    Joey keeps me disturbing me and I can't work!

    3."You really must stay and have dinner with us!" said Laura. STAYING
    Laura must be staying for dinner.
    Several possibilities here. Is there a target expression you have studied? Perhaps: 'Laura, we hope you will be staying for dinner.

    4.Alan split up with Julie because he couldn't stand her constant nagging. WITH
    Alan split up with Julie because he couldn't keep put up with her constant nagging.

    5.If you need me, call me any time,night or day. MATTER
    Call me if you need me, no matter what time it will be is.
    (It's true that you are referring to something that might occur in the future (will be), but when you say will be, it implies that it is definitely going to happen. In this case, the phone call my never be made.)

    6.I don;t want to be disturbed at all this morning! ACCOUNT
    On account I don;t want to be disturbed this morning!
    Try using the phrase 'on any account' (= for any reason).

    7.If Maurice hadn't told Beth about that letter, we wouldn;'t have argued. FOR
    Had for Maurice of telling Beth about that letter,we wouldn;t have argued.
    More than one possibility here. One possible phrase is 'If it hadn't been for Maurice telling Beth...'.

    8.We're going to miss the start of the film if we don;t hurry. TIME
    Unless we hurry, the film will start in no time we get there.
    When you arrive for a film (or anything else), you can be:
    1) early,
    2) on time, or
    3) late
    I hope this is useful,

    Petra

    Re: pls help me!

    Please don't run everything together. That makes the text harder to read. Do it more like this:
    1.The police have issued a description of the man wanted in connection with the robbery.

    2.I can't work because Joey won't leave me alone!

    3."You really must stay and have dinner with us!" said Laura.

    4.Alan split up with Julie because he couldn't stand her constant nagging.
    (Pyoung gave you some good advice.)
