Dear teachers,

Would you please tell which sentences are wrong and why?

1 a) I feel better since I moved house.

b) I am feeling much better since I have moved house.

(if both are correct what would be the difference between them, please?)

2. She no longer visits since she got married. (is it possible to use the simple present here with “since”?)

3. She doesn't come and see us (anymore) now that she is / has got (possible too?) married.

4a) It is / has been twenty years since I have seen her.

b) It is / has been twenty years since I last saw her.

(are all four versions correct ? If yes, is there a difference in meaning between them?)

5) Whether she plays on Saturday (is “or not” necessary here ?) depends on what her doctor says.

6) I've been miserable ever since my family died in a car crash.

(correct ? or would you rather put “depressed”, “My life has been shattered”)

Many thanks,

Hela

They won't smoke ever since they saw a film on lung cancer.

What does "won't" mean here?

Hi,

They won't smoke ever since they saw a film on lung cancer.

What does "won't" mean here?

It's short for 'will not', as you probably know.

One of the various possible meanings of 'will' is to express determination to do something or, as in this case, not to do something.

Best wishes, Clive.
