All are correct. 1, 2, and 3 mean that he has done the verb's action in the past and continues into the present. 4 means that he started working on the farm at some time in the past and is still doing so ... and hasn't stopped yet!

Why I refused = not a complete sentence. You can make it complete if you turn it into a question (Why did I refuse?), but as it is, it's still a fragment. How to make both ends meet = a fragment, yes. And yes, your way to make it a complete sentence is fine.

Jessa is ... brown hair. <~~?? How about this? Jessa is tall, slender, and brunette.
November 27, 2014

english
tall slender has brown hair That is faulty because it has two adjectives and a verb phrase. You need to make it have 3 adjectives or 3 verb phrases. Which will you choose?

No, it's a fragment. That subject "Whatever" is the type of a pronoun that introduces a DEPENDENT clause. Sentences must be INDEPENDENT clauses. http://www.chompchomp.com/terms/completesentence.htm http://www.chompchomp.com/terms/fragment.htm

The plan to have a class reunion. You said, I think it's a sentence but idk because i can continue it by adding "is cancelled" in the end. If you have to add anything to make it a complete sentence, then it's not a complete sentence in the first place!

In his opinion, in reproducing -- delete "in" Well, maybe not! I think the problem in that sentence is lack of commas in the right places to help in understanding. It's another example of a too-complicated sentence, but correctly placed commas can help.

1 and 2 are closest in meaning. 3 would be used far less often.
November 26, 2014

1 and 2 are correct, and yes, they mean the same thing. 3 is incorrect because "rest" is plural, and it needs the verb to be "live" as in sentence 2.

I agree with Steve except for the comma. In my opinion, the only comma needed in each sentence is the one that's already included. http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/commas.htm Uses #1 through #7 are the most common comma uses. Be sure to check out #11.
