I would say "The mother" in d. The use of "Mother" as a form of address is formal or old-fashioned.

Use "to give" or "to deliver" after "headmaster" in h. Say "in" or "at" the meeting, not "on the meeting". You could also say "during the meeting".

I don't really like "it was time" & "during the meeting" used in the same sentence. How about "it was time for the headmaster to give/deliver a speech to the assembly"?

Are these correct?



Can I Say,

(d) Mother bought some fish.

(If the picture shows a mother bought fish,can I say in that way?without "His/ My mother"?))

(h) It was time for the headmaster to give a speech (on / during assembly.)


I have made a few changed. How about (d)?

Can I Say,

(d) Mother bought some fish.

(If the picture shows a mother bought buying fish,can I say in that way?without "His/ My mother"?)) Your sentence is correct, but means your mother. You will need "His/Her" to indicate someone else's mother.

(h) It was time for the headmaster to give a speech (on / during assembly.)


I have made a few changed. How about (d)?
If it is not certain whose mother she is, use "the mother" meaning the mother in the picture.
Yes, or "a mother"
