3. What amazing things machines can do! Machines/can do

4. Listen

    2 and 3 are correct.

    There's an auxiliary (helping) verb in #1. do you see it?

    For #4, if that's all there is to the sentence, then the subject is "the understood 'you'" --

    for #1 is it people/do use

  • grammar - ,

    Yes, now you have #1 correctly done.

    For #s 4 and 7, put the word "you" in parentheses. For example, (you)/listen

    Re-think #s 6 and 9 in light of #1.

    The rest are fine.
