Hi teachers,
According to this text: (the text is from the 70's)
Halls: You mean Coke doesn’t know that even policemen have small two-way radios these days?
Baxter: That’s right. He probably thinks it’s going to take that policeman at least half an hour to get to the nearest phone. He thinks he can get pretty far in that time.

Could you confim or correct these questions?
a) What isn't Coke probaby aware of according to Halls?
b) Does Baxter agree with Hall's comment?
c) What does Coke probaby believe according to Baxter?
d) How far can Coke go in half an hour? (I don't really like this one)

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mister Micawber,
Thank YOU for your reply. Those are awesome. Emotion: smile
So, when we say 'according to ...' in a question, it is better to write at the beginning. I didn't know it. Emotion: smile

Yes, it is much clearer as to what is being asked.
Mister Micawbera) According to Halls, what is Coke probably not aware of?
Hi Mister Micawber,
Do you write 'not' after 'Coke probably' because it is more formal than, 'According to Halls, what isn't Coke probably aware of?'.

TS
No, because it is clearer as to what is being asked: What is...?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Mister MicawberYes, it is much clearer as to what is being asked.
Hi Mister Micawber,
It really is. Thanks a lot.

TS
Mister Micawberbecause it is clearer as to what is being asked: What is...?
Hi Mister Micawber,
OK. So both of them are fine considering that when you have the adverd 'not' in a question, it is clearer to write it separately and not together with the verb.

TS
Perhaps that's part of the explanation, yes.
