3. Mrs. Johnson gave her class a group project about safety.

3-1. Mrs. Johnson gave a group project about safety to her class.
(Are both the same?)

7-2. Don't hide under a bed and in a closet.

(Do I have to use 'and' or 'or'? Are both the same in meaning?)

  • English -

    1. - The second one is not used. The adverb is out of place.

    2. - Correct. In here, "get" means "receive."

    3. - 3 is better than 3-1.

    4. - 4 is better (fewer words!). "Below" is an adverb, telling where. 4-1 is OK, and yes, it's the full form.

    5. - 5-1 and 5-3 are not used. Someone is a bike rider, whether he/she is riding or driving! Weird, huh?

    6. - 6, 6-2, and 6-4 are correct. (6-5 would be correct if you were riding on the roof of the car, I suppose!)

    7. - The conjunctions "and" and "or" do not have the same meanings. 7 means not to hide in either of those places. 7-1 seems impossible to do unless the bed is in a closet! Think of the word "and" like a + sign; the word "or" gives you a choice of one or the other.
