    I see you have not tried to rewrite any of them since yesterday. Have you studied the website that Sra gave you? Have you even read and thought about the questions I asked you.

    No one here will revise these sentences for you, but we will be able to comment and offer suggestions once we see some effort on your part.

    I think you get the idea, right? All you need to do is think about now to simplify the words, too, once you reword them.
