    2. Conventional methods have proved as ineffective and they are now experimenting with a radically different treatment. --> omit as
    3. I couldn't whip up any enthusiasm for going out on such a cold night. --> error-free
    4. One vitamin pill a day is the equivalent for drinking tow liters of orange juice. --> of
    5. Coffee is stimulus and should not be drunk late at night. --> a stimulant
    6. Their singing was excruciating and most people left the room. --> most of the people
    7. If you're feeling nervous during an interview, try to improve your posture. --> improving
