Hi everyone,

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I hope it's in the right place. I am an EFL student (9th year) and need some help with sentences for an English competition. Our professor had given us some tests to practice with, and after we solved them, she graded them. Now, I had done well on almost every part, expect one. This is what:

Complete the second sentence using the word in bold. Do not change the given word. Use between TWO and FIVE words. Including the given word.

EXAMPLE: Carl hasn't been to the theatre for many years
ages
It's ages since Carl has been to the theatre.

I will list all sentences, even though I had 4 out of ten correct.

1. I am sure it wasn't Jim who did it.
have
It____________________________Jim who did it.

2. Tim overslept so he missed the train
not
If___________________________, he wouldn't have missed the train

3. He is saving money because he wants to buy a new car
view
He is saving money______________________________a new car.

4. He won't lend you his new sweater on any account
will
On____________________________lend you his sweater.

5. Someone stole my TV when I was at the theatre.

6. It would be better if you didn't smoke in my house
rather

7. She intends to work abroad this summer
intention
It______________________________smoke in my house

8. He always takes a taxi home at night so that he won't be mugged.
fear

9. I'm sorry I didn't call you last night.

10. People say that Harry fobbs is a gifted artist.
