  • Dear Bet, if you even thought that a man was angry, it was quite clear before him was a tray with dinner that a flight attendant hadn't served.

  • Actually, I thought he was deadly....not dead!

  • Dear Bet!

    6. Yes, you may replace the participle phrase with the gerund phrase "After returning from work". However, to use a clause after SAW is unnatural. It must be "I saw my wife setting (set).."

    1. Yes, dear, I know it was you who wrote such a great sentence! LOL! But let me ask if you have ever seen a dead person standing. Besides, a dinner table sounds a little strange speaking about the plane. Are there any other tables? Also, if you wanted to use the participle phrase at the beginning, it should have been "Not having been served..."

    9. You should remember such words

  • Okay, I got it it was different as there was seemed! But do not you think it is tough for us to remember which verb follows infinitive with to and without too......huhuhuhu.....

  •  Sir, I wrote it! Being not served by the flight attendant, a deadly man was standing on a tray before the dinner table! Is it impossible?! lol

  • Having come back from work I saw my wife set(ting) a cake into the oven but I didn’t want to eat the cake as I had been keeping a diet for long. if I say

    after returning from work I saw my wife was setting a cake into the oven but I didn’t want to eat the cake as I had been keeping a diet for long.

  • Dear Onee, I am sorry, too.

    But I belive it has been a useful lesson

  • Teacher Dan............

    :((( Next time I will post my attempt more quickly. hehe... I'm really sorry for being so late.

    So many thanks for this lesson.

  • OK, Bet, no problem.

    Please, read this blog and if you still have any questions, I will gladly answer them.


  • But it seems I need more explanation about the last number,...10, okay?
