All are correct. I'm not sure of the meaning of #7, but grammatically, it's correct.
November 10, 2016

English
All are correct. In these sentences, "what" is an interrogative pronoun since it introduces an indirect question in each. What did you win? What did you win in the competition? etc.
November 10, 2016

English
#2 is incorrect; #1 is correct. The verb needs to be in past tense -- used. When you pronounce "used to..." the d and t get pushed together. It sounds like "use to" but the spelling needs the d.

All are the same in meaning, but #3 is the best phrasing. In #1, "that" is the introductory word for the noun clause "that she had friends to help her." The entire noun clause is serving as the object of the preposition "in."

Yes -- adverbial. They answer the question "where?"

You really need to proofread before you hit that submit button. Much of this is hard to make sense of. I think these are correct ... if I'm guessing right about some of the weird wording and spelling.

November 10, 2016

English
Only #1's tag question is correct. The word "family" is a collective noun and in reality includes more than one person. My brother used to live in London, didn't he? My aunt used to live in London, didn't she? My dog used to live in London, didn't it?
November 10, 2016

English
They all mean approximately the same thing. Adding the word "very" just intensifies the adjective in these sentences.

All are fine, yes! All are correct definitions of "school" -- and sometimes we even use the word "school" when referring to a student who is in college or university. "What school does he go to?" "He's at Rice." [Rice University is ...
November 10, 2016

English
In all these sentences, the first of each pair is fine, and the second is clumsy. The second one in each is not incorrect, just clumsy and not used much. In the first sentence in each pair "Because" is a good substitute for "As."

The main verb used in each of sentences 1, 2, and 3 doesn't make sense. Here are some possibilities: Do you know ... Do you wonder ... Why is he upset, do you think? Where do you believe he lives? Where do you think he was born? 4-6 are all correct, yes.
