All are fine. There is no real difference in meaning between 2 and 3.
"at the present" or "at present" -- both mean the same thing. But "at present" is the more commonly used between these two.
All are fine, yes. And, yes, you can use any of those three phrases in #2. They're all fairly commonly used, although "at present" is probably most common.
No, you need to keep the "p" sound in there. Otherwise it sounds like "hel-ful" and that is incorrect. You may have to practice it as if it's two words for quite a while before it comes more easily.
1. "using the words in the box" is telling HOW to write the letter. Therefore, it's adverbial, modifying the main verb "Write." 2. "using the relative adverb" is also telling HOW -- this time it's modifying the main verb in the second ...
I'm not sure why #2 is not used. It just isn't! #3 is used a great deal, however, and so is #2-2.
1 - 12 are fine, yes.
9 and 10 are identical. You might make 10 read like this: Think again. 12 is odd. What pages?
There are errors in #3. Do you see them? http://www.perfect-english-grammar.com/indirect-questions.html
1. Go to http://www.google.com 2. Type in how many goals has messi scored 3. Press the Enter key. 4. Read, read, read

"can sleep by his backbone in the world" What does that mean?
Please correct and proofread what you have posted. It makes no sense to me.
No question here
What about it?
I'll send this to Sra. Be sure to keep checking back for her reply.
Either 2 or 3 is correct, depending on what is needed. If what she's using has an attached electric cord with a plug at the end of it, then she probably needs an extension cord to reach a far-away electric outlet.
1 is incorrect. It should read like this: How many stories does this house have? There are four stories in this house. or It has four stories. or It is a four-story house. 2 is correct.
1. Pick one of the stories. Make sure it has a clearly identifiable theme. http://literary-devices.com/content/theme 2. Give the title and author's name (usually somewhere in the first paragraph, but not necessarily in your thesis statement). 3. Clearly write a sentence in...
2 and 3 are wordy. 1 is better because it has fewer words to say the same thing. 2 states what "you" are able to do. 3 seems to be giving "you" an order!
1. OK 2 and 2-2. OK (2-2 implies that "he" is no longer alive.) 3 and 4. OK, even with the tense differences.

Ms. Sue won't be online for another few hours, and I don't see any other science tutors online now. You need to have patience, as you're instructed on the Post a New Question page.
First -- Get rid of the all-caps typing and misspelled words in your screen name space. Just a name so you can find your own post again is all that's needed. Second -- Copy and paste your problems into www.google.com and see what happens. Let us know what you learn.

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

I'll send this to Sra so be sure to check back. You might bookmark this webpage (Ctrl + D on Windows) to find it again.
Ms. Sue means you need to go back into your text and read the sections in which these topics are explained.
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?"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Washington%27s_crossing_of_the_Delaware_River These things are so easily googled!!
In what program? Word? Pages? Publisher? what??
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.
I think there's a better (and more obvious) answer here.
1. S/V = We Went, PP = to the church hall So far, so good, but you're missing anotheer PP. 2. S/V = Puppy Ran, PP = after the little girl OK 3. S/V = Jacob Threw, PP = across home plate OK 4. S/V = Mom Found PP = under the paper OK 5.S/V = Frog jumped PP = off the stone OK...
All are incorrect. Study these to learn how to recognize subjects and verbs and direct objects. Then try again. Do not guess! http://www.chompchomp.com/terms/subject.htm http://www.chompchomp.com/terms/verb.htm http://www.chompchomp.com/terms/directobject.htm
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?
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 ...
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."

I haven't either.
This is all very confusing to me. Character or characters are referring to people or animals "in a book, play, or film/movie," as you stated. Character also refers to how a person thinks and behaves. Characteristics are the traits and features of a person, animal, or...
All are fine, yes. =)

I doubt anyone here has read that. Is it a book? A short story? A play? What? What's the author's name? If that's the only thing you've read, you'll have to work at this. Basically, your directions are these: 1. Choose a work. (which you've done) 2. How...

Ms. Sue is right. Many times there are people (I won't call them students) who post unasked-for "answers" to real students' questions ... as well as nonsense "answers." One person this morning posted a complete test and all the "right answers ...
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.
Elar = ??
Quite impossible since I doubt anyone here has read that. Look up personification here: http://literary-devices.com/ Then read and re-read those chapters.

Boy! You are impatient, aren't you? Remember -- something may be an emergency for you (for example, when you are late getting an assignment done), but those things are not emergencies for us!

I don't see any "b" there. http://www.google.com/search?q=jacksonian+democracy&rlz=1C5CHFA_enUS705US707&oq=jacksonian+&aqs=chrome.0.0l4j69i57j0.6639j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
C is incorrect.
No, that semicolon is also correctly placed. That's two wrong guesses, so you're on your own now. Don't post about this again. http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/commas.htm http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/marks/semicolon.htm
No, that comma is correctly placed.

LOL, Steve! At first I thought the question would be about Iliad or Odyssey or Beowulf!! But no ... just a silly riddle!

It looks as if you need to go back to your text and read, read, read -- maybe as many as five times. Then try again. Be careful, though. We'll check only two answers per question. After that, you're on your own.

When you add "do you think" to a question, you're subordinating the direct question to an indirect question. The verb in an indirect question and usually the word order must change from verb phrase and word order in a direct question. Direct question: Where does ...

I'm not sure. I find nothing about a capital or a palace ... precious little about him except the constant fighting that was going on in that part of the world when he was in charge.
Nope, not A!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelawdewos
And I don't find anything about it online, either. My best guesses, though, are either A or D (since his people were nomadic up to a point in time).
What about your text? Where did you get the idea about gold and precious stones in the first place?
