2.Lance and Darren don't want to go to the party.

3.Hot Topic and Journeys are my favorite stores.

4.I don't want to wake up early, nor does Jane.

    4) I think instead of nor use neither.
    8) I would personally phrase it as: Neither my brother or I can go swimming.


    I'm just basing these corrections off of how I would speak it (native speaker). Hope this helps. :)

    Oops I meant nor for number 8. Sorry! :/ It goes 'either, or' and 'neither, nor'.

    Thank you, Mary :D

    Mary is incorrect about 4. If you use "neither," you'll create a run-on. With "nor" you have a correct compound sentence.
