2. But for Helen, the play would be a flep.( should be flop, my bad, retyped wrongly)

i can try but im not really comon with this kind of transformation, maybe you know where to find some exercise to practise it? or some rules explaining this?

Were...

and I don't know how to do it :/ only thing that comes to my mind is a sentence 'Were the play be a flop if not Helen' but i know alredy what it is wrong Emotion: sad

3. We still don’t know what has happened to all the missing passengers.

We still have not accounted for all the missing passengers. / for what has happened to all the missing passengers/ for what to all the missing passengers has hapened.

i dont know how to make it :/

4. ‘Shall I carry that bag for you, John?’ said Paul.
should be "Pauline" i made a mistake while copying.
Pauline….asked John if he should carry that bag for her. so i think this one is correct....
lucaslucas]2. But for Helen, the play would be a flop.

Were...
it not for Helen, the play would be a flop.

3. We still don’t know what has happened to all the missing passengers.


We still have not accounted for all the missing passengers -- most natural

... for what has happened to all the missing passengers -- most like the original, but not the most natural to my ears

... for what to all the missing passengers has hapened. Completely ungrammatical.

4. ‘Shall I carry that bag for you, John?’ said Pauling.

Pauline….asked John if he should carry that bag for her. so i think this one is correct....

Once again, Pauline is a girl's name, John is a boy's name. Look at the pronouns you have used.



4. ‘Shall I carry that bag for you, John?’ said Pauline.

Pauline….asked John if she should carry that bag for him.

*Pauline asked, not John. Emotion: wink
