  • English -

    1 and 2 are both correct (with or without the "a"), but rather than saying "comic drama" you should just use the term "comedy."

    3 is OK, but if you substitute "In addition," for "Plus" you'll have a better sentence.

    4 should be "He is a couch potato." The expression means that he sits or lies on the couch all day (probably watching TV!) and doesn't do much else. It also sometimes implies that he's getting fatter as a result.

    5 is not correct, but 6 is.

    7 and 8 are both fine. 7 implies that people are just now forming a line; 8 implies there's already a line and the person should join it.

    9 is correct; 10 is not. The word "at" is not needed.

    11 and 12 mean the same thing. Some times the wording in 11 is changed around: "He put out the fire."
