Good morning, everyone.
I hope you enjoy your relaxing sunday morning.
Unfortunately, I still have to do the English exercise.

I have encountered the following problems in my exercise.
1) The weather in Britain is changeable.
my answers: The Britain weather is changeable.
because the weather is specific to a particular region, that's why I have to use "the" in my answer. Is it right?


When I would like to specify a particular object, but at the same time I also want to describe it, is the way below proper to manifest so?

A) The old machine which broke down is working now.

Is it a correct sentence?

A) The old machine which (had)(was) broken down is working now.

Is it a correct sentence? Your sentence is okay, but the above changed sentence is probably better.
