In the short story, there are ten lines. In each line, there may or may not be an error. I have completed seven lines. Can you help me to finish the remaining three?

Hi,

In 10, they may want 'but' instead of 'and'. However, 'and ' is not wrong.

Or 'home' instead of 'back home', yet 'back home' is not wrong, just a little casual.

10. seems OK to me.

Thanks for your timely reply. I have two questions: In line 3: why must we delete "the"? I am not quite sure about the article before the proper noun.

In line 8: do you mean that we can either use had brought and brought ?

Thanks again.
Hi,

I have two questions: In line 3: why must we delete "the"? I am not quite sure about the article before the proper noun. We don't usually use an article in front of a proper name.

In line 8: do you mean that we can either use had brought and brought ? Yes.

Hi,Clive!

Your reply is wonderful!

Another, in line 8, some people argue that we should change with us into between us or between ouselves. What do you say to it?

Hi,

Another, in line 8, some people argue that we should change with us into between us or between ouselves. What do you say to it?

If you mean 'the food accompanied us, eg in our backpacks', say

We shared ( what we brought with us ).

If you mean 'we shared the food so that each one of us got something to eat', say

We shared (what we brought ) between us.

But really, you wouldn't need to say 'between us' because that is implicit in the verb 'share'.

It seems apparent to me that this is not the intended meaning.
