Hi! Please help me! ^^

Question 1

He came into room with his hat on.

Can you change the sentence above to 'He came into room, his hat on.' ?

Question 2

I didn't know that anything was wrong.

Is this sentence is right grammartically?

Thank you so much in advance. ^^

Hi Brightsun,

Regarding your first Question:

I think the sentence should be 'He came into room, his hat was on'

Regarding your second Question:

I think your sentence is O.K.

1. He came into the room with his hat on.
2. He came into the room, his hat on (... and eyes popped).

«I didn't know that anything was wrong.» — is bad IMHO.

3.1. I didn't know that something was wrong.

3.2. I didn't know that there was something wrong.

3.3. I didn't know _if_ anything was wrong

3.4 (different meaning) I didn't know that everything was wrong

Thank you very much for your kind answer. ^^

Then I'd like to know what IMHO means.

I didn't know that anything was wrong.» — is bad IMHO
IMHO == 'In My Humble Opinion'; //You could have tried to find it in Google BTW!
Question 1.

He came into the room with his hat on. OK.
He came into the room, his hat on
. Awkward. Very unusual.

Question 2.

I didn't know that anything was wrong. OK.

I didn't know that anything was wrong. OK.

Hi everyone,
let me take advantage of that... I recently learned about that structure (I didn't know it!):
- Do you have any sisters?
- Yes, two.
- Oh, really? I didn't know you had any sisters!

I was wondering if "any" is mandatory in such structures, or "some" could be good too. For example, I think "I didn't know that anything was wrong" and "I didn't know that something was wrong" are both ok and the same in meaning (the one with "any" sounds more "general", though). But in my example, would it be the same? "Some" good too?
Thanks Emotion: smile
Sorry for misleading...

Now I don't understand was does this mean:

«I didn't know that anything was wrong»

What didn't the guy know?

1. The fact that everything was wrong
2. The fact that something was wrong
?
Hi,
"I didn't know that anything was wrong" ---> the fact that there was something wrong. I really thought everything was ok.
"I didn't know that you had any sisters" ---> the fact that you have some sisters. I really thought you had none.

Just wondering if those kinds of anys are mandatory... or "some" is ok too.
