Hello, Hoody!

I'm puzzled by your sentences... Here's what I propose:
"I went home and found (out) that I haven't won the Lottery. If I had, I would probably have taken everyone out for dinner, and even bought them an extra dessert. I would be having trouble concentrating on my homework because I couldn't wait to buy a trip on an airplane, eat a lobster and launch a party".

Emotion: tongue tied
I agree the exercise I am try to do lists all these sentences and asks me to correct spelling and punctuation. I don't know like u did if I am suppose to make a story that makes sense as well out of them. I typed them as they were listed just like in my original post.

Thank you

Well, either you've won the lottery or you haven't.
I found out that I won the Lottery. If I hadn't. I would have probably taken
everyone, out to diner

What I've just quoted is nonsense.
You win the lottery, then you take your freinds out for dinner, right?
You don't, you stay home!

What I've just quoted is nonsense.
You win the lottery, then you take your friends out for dinner, right?
You don't, you stay home!
Maybe you could list your sentences...
There's enough mistakes here that different responders could conjure up a number of rewrites. Makes it interesting. Pieanne's is good.

How about this one , in contrast:

I went home and found that I'd won the Lottery. If I hadn't won, I would probably (surely) not have taken everyone out to dinner and paid for their desserts. Because I did win, I'm having trouble concentrating on my homework. All I can think of is throwing a party, buying my own airplane, taking trips, and ,oh yes, eating lobster.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
thanks i am trying to get a clarification on if I am to treat these sentences seperately or just make them into a sensible story

I appreciate the help
Much better, Davkett, though I guess eating lobster is much more easy then buying your own airplane.
Hi Pieanne,
Not if you hate the taste of seafood (and it's the only main dish at the party), and your Lottery ticket was worth 100 million dollars.

I'd be interested to know if Hoody 41's question is an accurate quotation of the test question and its instruction.
