    I think both mean the same, more or less. Isolated means there are no other houses nearby, whereas, to me, 'secluded' would mean that the house was in a forest, not in the open, but tucked amidst trees.

    2. Can you correct and explain to me the sentences below?

    "Why didn't you answer the telephone?"
    "Because I was in the bathroom."

    Not a teacher.

    -The First question:buildings or places that are isolated when they are far away from any other.A place is secluded if it is quiet and private, not used or distributed by other people. These definitions are from the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary so I think they will be helpful for you
    -The second question:In the question, the word "telephon" is false, "telephone" is true and in the answer, the verb must be "was having". It means that while SB was doing sth, a short action happened.
    Do you get it? Hope my answer is helpful for you.
