  • English -

    #s 1, 2, and 4 are correct; #3 isn't.

    #s 5, 6, and 7 are correct; #8 isn't. #5 can also be phrased like this: He inherited his father's estate. #8 can be rephrased like this: His brother's clothes were handed down to him. (The term hand-me-downs refer to clothing and other items that are passed from one child to the next in a family.)

    The opposite of "at the beginning" would be something to do with "the end," wouldn't it? At the beginning of the story, the main character was a young wife, but by the end she was a grandmother, telling family stories to her grandchildren.
