    Can I say 'Your dad is calling you on the roof' ?

    My dear and respected teaachers,
    1 : "I gather he's a good boy" correct?
    2 : "We all are descendants of Adam" correct?
    3 : "Your dad is calling you on the roof" OR "Your dad is calling you, he is on the roof" Which one is correct?
