Would you be kind enough to tell me your expert advice regarding my attempt to express an agreement or confirmation with the help of a Infinitive (affirmative or negative) used as an object?
1.1.Do you really mean to give this new camera to Bill on his birthday? Don’t you think such a present is too expensive for a boy of his age?
1.2.You are quite right there. I decided not to give it to him. He is still a very young child.
1.1.I think it is too early for Betty to go out yet. She is still very weak.
1.2.You are perfectly right. The doctor told her to stay in for another week at least.
3.1. I’m sure Mary took offence at hearing your joke at the party.
3.2. That’s just what I think. For when I met her the other day she turned a way and pretended not to see me.
4.1.Helen never went to a ballet-school in her shildhood. But she dances like a professional, doesn’t she?
4.2.That’s just what I’ve always thought. I know who taught her to dance?
5.1.It’s only five, but it’s getting dark, and the children are still in the park.
5.2.That’s just what I was going to say. We mustn’t allow them to stay out so late in winter.
Thank you for your efforts.
