Hi Teachers,

Could you correct this paragraph please?

Well, there is no fish for Robert tonight. The cat has got it under the table and Mrs. Anderson hasn't got any more food at home. Robert isn't very happy about it. In fact he's angry. He is also very hungry, so Robert must eat outside the house.

Another question: in this sentence 'Robert isn't very happy about it', is it also possible to say?

'Robert isn't very happy for it'.

If yes, could you tell me why?

Thank in advance

'Has to' sounds more idiomatic to me here than 'must'.

'Robert isn't very happy for it'. No

Hi Clive,

Thank you for your reply and corrections. Emotion: smile

As an explanation to 'has to', can I say 'has got the necessity to'?

Thanks again

Hi,

THat's an awkward phrase. I suggest ''He needs to'.
