Homework Help: English

Posted by Mike1 on Sunday, April 17, 2011 at 10:05am.

I still have a few doubts on the use of "earlier". I included other five sentences I'm really doubtful about

1) Can't you say:
Would you mind if I stopped working ten minutes earlier (than I'm expected to)? (If I write "before" or earlier without including a phrase is it a mistake??)
2) I broke a glass and I blamed my friend. Since then we are not (why not "have not been"?) friends any more.
2) I felt sorry for a friend that twisted his ankle. He's going to have problems at (?) his left foot.
3) I last felt ashamed when I blamed my friend (better a friend) even if he hadn't done anything wrong. Shouldn't I use the past parfect "hadn't done", instead of "didn't do"?
4) She congratulated Mark for/on passing his exam (because he passed/had passed his exam) with the highest mark. (Are all alternatives possible??)
5) He is enthusiastic about his exam result (is it possible?). He is satisfied, delighted, pleased, content WITH (not about) his exam result. But He is happy about/with his exam result. He is cheerful about his exam result.
6) Do you "ever" prepare breakfast by yourself? Is not the same as Do you "always" prepare breakfast by yourself?
