1)I prefer to go out to clubs and see live comedy instead of watching TV recodings of it

Use than to rewrite, start by:

I prefer to see live comedy ___________ watching TV recordings of it

I think I would add "than" in the space, is it right?

2) His boss told him he was fired and ordered him to leave immediately

Use "got" to rewrite, start by:

His boss told him he ___________________ and said he sould leave immediately

I really in mess with this sentence

3)she didn't let them out of sight for a second

Rewrite, start by:

Not______________

* The 3 questions above are not my assigment, I've read them in a test to the highschool and I didn;t know how to do them, so expect for your help

At least in American English, it is NOT a requirement to have "rather than." You can use "than" all by itself.

Yes, but that's not enough. You need another word before "than" (clue: it begins with "r")

"to get the sack" is an idiomatic expression for "being fired". Does it help?

You're absolutely right! I wrote "need," which is wrong, because it's only my personal preference.

Sorry about that!
