1. How often do you read the newspaper?
- Sometimes.
- I often read it.
- I read the newspaper from time to time.
- Three times a week.
- I never read it.
(Are the answers all acceptable? Do you have some more common answers?)

2. Don't be worried about that.
2-1. Don't worry about that.
2-2. Don't be concerned about that.
(Are the three the same?)

  • English -

    All of the newspaper sentences are fine.
    I read parts of the newspaper everyday.


    All of the #2 sentences are the same.

  • English -

    If #1 is a survey question, you might want to be more specific in your alternatives:
    Daily
    5-6 times a week
    2-4 times a week
    weekly
    less than weekly
    never

    "Sometimes," "Often" and "time to time" are very vague terms.

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