Hello.
I will be very grateful for your help.
1) Is it possible to use "for the present" in the meaning "so far" in the context "she hasn't said for the present how long she will stay in London"?
2)Is it possible to use an infinitive after "to come to agreement / reach agreement", for example "They came to agreement to sign a contract"?
3)Is the phrase with the word "period" OK "a financial crisis in the period from 2008 to 2010"?
Thank you for all your help.

    1. No. Here's how I'd phrase it: So far, she hasn't said how long she will stay in London.

    2. That would be very awkward. It'd be better to phrase it like this: They came to an agreement and signed the contract. OR They agreed to sign a contract.

    3. Yes, that's fine.
