Hi KK,

Your last sentence needs re-building:

'Television, quite the opposite of books, presents drama, comedy and talk shows, affording entertainment for idle hours.'

'Presents' is now the main verb, of course, for the subject 'television'. 'Quite the opposite' would not be considered an appositive, since it is grammatically connected to the rest of the sentence with the omitted 'which is': 'Television, which is quite the opposite of books. . .'.

Hi,

for his own safety, a soccer referee in greece disguised himself as a priest after a match because he had greatly upset the local fans.

This sentence is fine, except that you need two capital letters. Can you see where?Emotion: smile

Best wishes, Clive

I have written some sentances; would you help me by checking them?

The ROC, which is a country, emphasizes social welfare.
The next sentance is fine.
The sentance about the professor is grammatically correct, but rather funny. I guess you're just asking about the structure of the sentance.

I'm sorry, but I can't comment on the last sentance. I'm not sure what the meaning is supposed to be. Maybe "Television talk shows, quite the opposite of books that present drama and comedy, entertain during idle hours." But the sentance just doesn't make sense to me.

There should be a space after each comma. I don't know if leaving the space out was intentional or just "lazy" typing.
