  • English -

    All are correct except #8. It should be: He did his friend's homework when she was sick.

  • English -

    Using apostrophes for possessives is tricky -- even for native English speakers.

    The basic rule is that if the noun ends with s, as friends, then you add the apostrophe after the s to make it possessive. However, in your sentence, you meant the "homework of your friend," so the possessive is "friend's."

  • English -

    3,4,5. Obeying and following are better than keeping. Depending on the context, keeping the rules might indicate that you were thinking of getting rid of the rules but decided to keep them.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
