1. He killed him.
2. He killed himself.
(Can we use both sentences. I think they have different meaning.)

3. You should take care of yourself.
4. You shoud take care of you.
(Are both OK? Is #4 wrong?)

5. He looked at himself in the mirror.
6. He looked at him in the mirror.
(Are both the same? Is #6 correct? Does 'him' refer to the subject or another man?)

  • English -

    1, 2. They certainly DO have different meanings. 1. he killed someone else but 2. he killed himself

    3., 4. They are both correct, but 3 is definitely clearer.

    5., 6. Again like 1 and 2, 5. it is himself BUT 6. it could be another boy/man.
