Let me ask you this, please.

At what level are you studying English?
eg beginner / low intermediate / high intermediate / advanced

Clive
You still ask me this question!!!
OK,maybe my English is in advanced level ( grammar). But it as a whole is still low ( eg: vocabulary, listen-skill.......) . Is this involved in helping me, what?
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
I think you don't need to help me now
Hi,

I asked because these are very hard questions for any student of English.

In addition, most exercises focus on a single aspect of grammar, but I don't see that here.
In other words, what are you supposed to be learning from this?

-> (blame) On being asked about the accident, I took the blame because I burned the toast...............................
7. There was no need for you to have gone to the stadium because the referee first blew the whistle 90 minutes into the game <<<< This is a flawed sentence.
-> (playing) You did not need to have gone to the stadium because the referee first blew the whistle 90 minutes after playing began. ..........................
8. It was six years ago when It last poured down here
-> ( for) There had not been a downpour of rain heree for six years. ..............................
9. What surprised them was that there weren't nearly as many people there as they had expected.
-> (caught) That there were far fewer people there than they had expected was what caught them by surprise..
10. What do you think the present negotiations would have returned out if I had performed wisely ? <<< This is an incorrect sentence as written.
-> (outcome) Were I to have performed wisely, how do you think the present negotiations would have turned out?, .........................
I am really a self-taught English student. I always try to grasp all rules, structure E which my teacher taught from rewrite sentences. Then apply it to do other exercises. With this exercise, I really can do completely but I have suspicions about it a bit because this ex has structures that I have never known before but ......!
I also strengthen the listen-skill......and reduce learning grammar.
Thanks very much
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I think we should use " only when" in the second sentence
You could. Do you want to try?

Only when(after) they told me about it did I realize that......................
Sorry, I think they are both true
