I had a test on functional grammar today. I wish to know, if some of the exercises I did were correct or not.

Please let me know, if my answer is wrong.

Transformation:

1. I will not sign the contract under any circumstances.

Begin: Under no circumstnaces ... will I sign the contract.

2. You never know what is going to happen to you, do you?

Begin: One.... never knows what is going to happen to him/her, does one?

3. He complained to the police that his nighbours were noisy.

Begin: In his..... complaint to the police, he mentioned that his neighbours were noisy.

4. Although he aspired for public recognition he remained relatively unknown.

Begin: In spite... of aspiring for public recognition, he remained relatively unknown.

Prepositions:

1. I had to give up halfway through the race because I was so tired.

2. She tends to whistle as she goes through her household chores.

3. Are they still debating over the question?

4. I do not intend to debate with you.

5. would you please advise me on what kind of computer to buy?

6. I hope you will advise Mini over her legl rights.

7. the students are agitating against the rules.

Hi,

Please let me know, if my answer is wrong.

Transformation:

2. You never know what is going to happen to you, do you?

Begin: One.. never knows what is going to happen to him/her, does one?

One never knows what is going to happen (to one), does one?

Prepositions:

3. Are they still debating over the question? OK, but I'd just omit 'over'.

6. I hope you will advise Mini over on/about/of her legl rights.

Use the correct form of the word in bracket:

all ok

Best wishes, Clive
