Thanks a lot.
First of all, would you please explain the assignment? Are both the sentence as is and what you include in parentheses all your work? Why are there 2 choices for the sentences? My eyes will not scan up and down so I have to print the sentences so I can read them.
I 'll be back as soon as they are printed (4 pages).
1. either is grammatically correct, but because it's a person, I prefer "who."
2. (to go) but the rest is fine.
3. (in parenetheses) other wise a law that fights
7. on and either, but I like what is in parentheses
8. I don't copy the words
9. any of those 3
10. yes, often the adverb can go in several places: at the beginning as well
12. hanging in the air - what is in parenthese
16. was and capitalize King's
17. yes - all 3 ok
21. use what is in parentheses
23. the first is either and the past - no control over himself
24. in parentheses is clearer
26. she was sitting or she was seated
28. founded / established / formed
30. moving or crawling across
31. in Genesis or in the book of Genesis - as is
32. what is in parentheses is more common
