The Grammar Test to Refresh Your Memory

My friends, I'd like you to recall Danny's and my lessons and to correct the mistakes again. Your task is the same as in "Find and correct the mistakes". For those who are newbies or don't remember, I will explain once again.

There may be a few mistakes in each sentence. You should find and correct them all without changing the vocabulary. It is a grammar test. As usual, I will lead you explaining your mistakes.

Are you ready?

Here is your task:

  1. Were you there ever or did you see it by the TV?
  2. He stopped looking around and to see was he followed.
  3. There was no time enough so that I make up my mind.
  4. I didn’t notice his going out of the party and started to ask the questions where was he.
  5. He didn’t remember to call up her and again he called.
  6. Women prefer to accompany with family members where one man is must.
  7. Don’t forget shutting the windows when you will leave.
  8. She asked what would we do if we couldn’t check to any hotel.
  9. I thought it going to never end.
  10. Why don’t again to check your English level?

The deadline is August 21.

Have a great time!

Here are the correct sentences.

  1. Have you ever been there or (you haveseen it on __ TV?
  2. He stopped to look around and to see whether/if he was being followed.
  3. It was not enough time for me to make up my mind.
  4. I didn’t notice him go off/leave the party and started asking the questions where he was.
  5. He didn’t remember calling her up and (he) called her again.
  6. 6.  Women prefer to be accompanied by the family members one of whom must be a man.
  7. Don’t forget to shut the windows when you_ leave (are leaving).
  8. She asked what we would do if we were not able to check into any hotel.
  9. I thought it was going never to end.
  10. Why not to check your English level again?

Of course, you can ask me any questions as always.

Thanks for your hints, dear Danny.

Here is my correction: I'm waiting for the next execution....LOL !!!

  
1.  Have you ever been there or you have seen it on TV?

2.  He stopped to look around and to see whether he has been followed.

3.  There was not enough time making up my mind.

4. I did not notice that he had left the party and began to ask the questions where he was.

6. Women prefer to be accompanied by family members with at least one man.

8.  She asked what we would do if we could not check into a hotel.

10. Why not to check your English level again?

Hi, dear Rose! Tanya is busy so it is me who is "on the duty" today! I am really happy to see you refreshed and full of energy after your vacation. Let me analyze your answers as usual.

1. The tense is correct, but there must be only one inversion in any direct question.

2. The past simple tense in the last clause is not the best choice if we say that a man wanted to know if there was someone behind at that moment. The rest is correct.

3. The given sentence is incorrect for sure. Do you remember my telling about the infinitive after ENOUGH and TOO? So your first option with the infinitive is understandable, but it is incorrect. Do you know why?

4. To use a gerund after NOTICE is incorrect.

5. We meant something different but your sentence is good.

6. This sentence is from one EC blog. It means that women don't like to travel alone and need at least one man accompanying them.

7. Correct.

8. We don't use CAN/COULD speaking about the future/future past.

9. Your sentence is correct but it is not what we meant.

10. The present simple tense is wrong without any shadow of doubt.

Will you try to make some corrections, please! Thanks for participating.

1.  Have you ever been there or have you seen it on TV?

2.  He stopped to look around and to see whether he was followed.

3.  There was not enough time to make up my mind.
     (There was not enough time so that I couldn't make up my mind.)

4.  I did not notice his going from the party and began to ask the questions where he was.

  
5.  He didn't remember that he had called her up and called her again.
 
( 6. Women prefer to accompany with family members where one man is must.)
Sorry but I did not get the sense of this sentence.


7. Do not forget to shut the windows when you leave.

8. She asked what we could do if we could not check into a hotel.

9.  I thought it would never end.

10.  Why don't you check your English level again?

7) Don't forget to shut/ close the windows when you leave / you're leaving.

3) There was not enough time to make up mind.

Dear Onee, what about your desire not to dry out your brain? LOL!

Yes, both are right, but HOTEL (singular) sounds better
