First part is in the present, and the second clause in the past perfect. Is that correct though? If I have to wait more than 10 minutes for the bus, I would have been better off taking the subway. If I have to wait more than 10 minutes for the bus, I would rather have taken the subway. Thank you

You can set your goal as you want, but it is a different issue whether you can achieve it. 1. Would you check whether the above sentence is correct? 2. Could I replace the underlined 'issue' with 'problem?' Thank you.

And here is the change I am thing of: he likes to slowly knead the dough.

I would appreciate if someone could check the original and the corrections I made below. Thank you Original Business letters, despite the enormous popularity of e-mail must still be wrote when a permenent record is necessary. If you follow a writing process organizing the content and composing the first draft is easier. Chelsea acts as if she was the only person who ever received a complement about their business writting. Chelseas letter which she sent to the manger and I was distinguished by 3 characteristics. Clear content, a goodwill tone, and correct form. Davonne Jordan whom I think is our newly-appointed Vice President wants everyone in the Company to beware of computer viruses. When the Office Manager writes business letters or memos he allways ends it with the same "Do not hesitate" phrase. The manager and myself realized an item was missing from the April 1st shipment consequently we sent a claim letter for one hundred thirty-one dollars. After our supervisor and her returned from there meeting at two P.M. we were able to sort the customers names and addresses more quick. If you must write an order letter be sure to include: the quantity order number description unit price tax shipping and total costs. Matthew enclosed a check for two hundred dollars, however he worried that it was insufficient to regain the confidence of the customer.

I want to defend society and its inhabitants from all ideologies, science included. Would you tell me what the preposition from means here? Although I have seen and known the preposition of might mean against, in fact, my profs. has just told me : "the preposition from in this sentence never ever means against, it means just of". Do you know why? Because if you want to put the preposition of, then you must put a noun of place after the word inhabitants! for example: Inhabitants of India not inhabitants from India And, as there is not any place, so we have to put the preposition from instead of of.
