Hello That's taboo over here. I wanted to put an adverb before "taboo", so I picked up "absolutely", "definitely", "certainly" and "surely", but are all of them appropriate? Thank you.

"Without your help, I do not think that I could do it now." Is the sentence natural to use? "Without your help, I could not do it now." I have learned that this is a kind of conditionals and I was wondering if 'I do not think' can be inserted like that? And can I also put ' now ' in both sentences like that, too? Thank you so much as usual in advance!

1a) As [is] known to everybody, there are certain trace elements in our body which are required to keep us in good health. 1b) As [it is] known to everybody, there are certain trace elements in our body which are required to keep us in good health. ---------------------- I knew intuitively that 1a) is grammatically correct, but 1b) is grammatically incorrect. But I don't know how to explain 1b) is grammatically wrong, and use of 'as' in these sentences(as an relative pronoun, conjunction..etc) So please, how can I explain 1b) is grammatically wrong? Thank you for reading.

1. I spilled nail polish on the carpet. I tried to scrape it off but it (had) bolted (or dried, hardened) too quickly for me to do that. Now the carpet is a bit abrasive there. 2. How much do you estimate it at?(for instance a price for something) I'm not sure about the preposition 'at'. Are these sentences correct?:) And one more thing, is it possible to change my username? Thank you for your help.

Money has an integrated role in our lives because it is hard to live without it. Some people may hold an opinion that parents should not give money to their children during their school period, while others may adhere an opposite view. In my view, parents should never give money to their children. To begin, I must say that children are not mature. Therefore, it is possible that children may waste money and not use money appropriately. We all became mature after certain ages and various experiences in our lives. The example of my friend is the good example of what I mean. My friend named Frank and I used to go same school. His father spend most of his time in army camps therefore he always gave money directly to Frank whenever he wanted to some items during our school. One day Frank's father gave him ten dollars to buy books, but Frank spent all money on ice cream and candy and he did not bought books. That was due to his immaturity that he did not know about the proper use of his money. We can clearly see from above example that number of time due to lack of maturity children may waste their money if their parents give them directly, therefore it is better for parents to go with their children if they want to buy some items. In addition to immaturity, children may not value money if they get it at early ages. It is human tendency that we can give values to those things which we get after doing hard work. Children must learn about the values of number of things in their lives and specifically about money. It is nearly impossible for children to give value to money if they get is easily. For instance, I can recalled my own experience when I was in school. My father used to give me ten dollars every week during my schooling. I spent most of money on unnecessary items such as ice cream and toys. Moreover, I also started to smoke tobacco with my friend and I did not think about the important of money because it was easy for me to get from my parents. Therefore, from my personal experience I can say that parents should not give money to their children if they really want to teach their children about important of money. There is no doubt that parents must spend money for their children if they want some items but never give money directly to children. In conclusion, based on above mention points I strongly believe that parents should never give money directly to their children because they may use it wrongly and they do not learn about important of money.

Please check if there is some mistake. Present, Past or future tenses. Joining of Ship after Class 4 COC (Certificate of Competency) AlhumdulilAllah by the grace of Allah I joined MT QUETTA after a very long time (about 1 year). I signed off from my previous ship MT KARACHI (9 Months) sailing. I joined the vessel from Karachi port. I came to Karachi on 02 march 2014 and completed my all documentation on Monday eg. Medical, Result card of 2nd Engineer COC (Part A), Overhaul (Boiler Suits) and safety shoes from PNSC stores, KPT pass renew, then meet Abdullah Bhai. When I completed all my documentation, I met with an Electrical Engineer (In Hindi/Urdu Bati Sahab) will name after checking in my mobile contact of the smartphone. I questioned many things from Bati sahib. Yes, he answered also about the purpose of single line diagram, Which I had seen on MV Multan during my apprenticeship. I nearly forget the pattern of my watch system. But after seeing and insuring it in only a single bird eye view I remembered back many things which I had learned in the previous ship MT Karachi. Raza met me on 03-03-2014. A meeting with Sardar sahib is good he came on the ship to pack his entire luggage. Then the very next day he told me about the entire things which he was doing as a 5th engineer aboard ship. Also he told me that the governor linkages were remaining to be greased. He told that shabab alam is a very nice chief engineer. He told me about my trainee engineer that they are good. Raza told me that he was doing the following work 1. IOPP tanks sounding 2. Bunker tanks sounding (also type on computer in excel file) 3. Log Book (also type on computer in excel file) 4. Work done (also type on computer in excel file) Transferring note down. When I came to the ship and during my first watch I felt like that I don’t remember all the thing but with the passage of time inshaAllah, I will manage all my works. During my watch today the following things I observed. 1. No manometer at EGE 2. No manometer at Turbocharger 3. Marking on fire and GS pump no. 1 (suction valve) 4. No alpha lubricator What I supposed to study is safety and my duties in SMS of PNSC, Safety manual (which is present in Engine room, Smoke room, and bridge) Check the name tele of Raza (which duties are assigned to him) Check the fire and safety drawing of the ship Check the pumping arrangement. Also I learned from sir ammar today remind 1m3=1kL and Metric tonne is basically mass of the body we get it by multiply volume x density (30 April 2015) Later on, I discovered that the ON/OFF button of FD fan for boiler is different from MT KARACHI. It is adjacent to FD fan 02 but on MT KARACHI it on ME LO Tank.

.......home earlier, we wouldn’t have missed the first part of the play. a)We had left b)If we left c)Had we left (Answer Key) d)Had we not been Source : school exam Hello, I say to myself that B is also correct. This is my analysis: If we left home earlier = we didn't leave home earlier we wouldn't have missed the first part of the play = we have missed the first part of the play So => Because we didn't leave home earlier, we have missed the first part of the play. Why can't B work? Thank you.
