Hello. I will be very grateful for your help.
1)Which article is correct in the context: "The ambassador gave a/the(?)promise that his country would not interfere"?
2)Do you think it's possible to use "carry out" or "realise" with "visit", for example, "The premier carried out / realized an official visit to Zimbabwe"?
3)Which word is correct, cause or reason, (maybe, both?)in the context "Civilian deaths are the main cause of / reason for(?)tension between Nato and Afghan officials".
4)Do you think it's possible to say "after a year" in the sentence "They will leave the country after a year" or is it only "in a year"?
5)Is it possible to use the infinitive after "arrange", for example "they arranged to meet in Paris early next year"?
Thank you very much for your help.

    1)Which article is correct in the context: "The ambassador gave a/the(?)promise that his country would not interfere"?
    The article "a" is better, but even better than that is to rephrase the sentence: The ambassador promised that his country would not interfere.

    2)Do you think it's possible to use "carry out" or "realise" with "visit", for example, "The premier carried out / realized an official visit to Zimbabwe"?
    Better phrasing: The premier made an official visit...

    3)Which word is correct, cause or reason, (maybe, both?)in the context "Civilian deaths are the main cause of / reason for(?)tension between Nato and Afghan officials".
    Both work fine. I prefer "reason," but both are correct.

    4)Do you think it's possible to say "after a year" in the sentence "They will leave the country after a year" or is it only "in a year"?
    Both are correct.

    5)Is it possible to use the infinitive after "arrange", for example "they arranged to meet in Paris early next year"?
    Yes, that's correct.

    1. a
    2. "carried out" is much better
    3. cause of
    4. "in a year" means in the next 12 months, and is clearer. Otherwise it is not clear when the time counting starts.
    5. yes, the infinitive use is perfect
