2) It’s two months since I last saw Mary. Mrs Brown hasn’t seen her son for three months.

    1. You can say what you put in parentheses, but the first phrasing is better ... smoother.

    2-4. OK

    5. I'd make the answer to this question simply "Eight months" or some other expression of time. The question asks "How long...?" not "When?"
