2 is correct because the two verbs' actions don't take place at the same time. The pots were broken before the master came home; therefore, 2 is correct. 3 is correct because the two verbs' actions don't take place at the same time. The pizza was eaten before &...

English
Yes, 1 and 4 mean about the same thing. And all these sentences are about possibilities, not facts.

English
2 and 4 are used most commonly. 1 is possible, but not often. 3 is not used.

What do "croe" and "lac" mean? A math tutor will need to know.

English
Steve is right. #8 is not ungrammatical, but having a present tense auxiliary verb is very strange. This would not be used very often, if at all.

English
When you write or say "the school," you are referring to a particular building or group of buildings. Steve is right; it does not mean the same as 2, and would not be used. You are right about 2.

English
1 and 2 mean the same thing. 2 has unneeded words in it. The prepositional phrase "to school" is telling WHERE, modifying "come." 3 and 4 are the same as 1 and 2. 5 wouldn't be used. 6 is fine.

English
1 and 2 mean about the same thing. 3 is fine if you remove the parentheses. This sentence gives details about what Julie did after she didn't buy the book. The other two don't. 4 and 5 mean about the same thing, but 5 is the better phrasing.

English
Both seem fine. They aren't identical, of course, but it's hard to explain without knowing what "it" is.

English
1 and 2 are the same. 1 and 6 can be the same, too. "Take" means moving it away from you. "Bring" means moving it toward you. 4 means something else entirely! http://www.dictionary.com/browse/understand

English
1 means 3. 2 also happens, unfortunately, but that's not what 1 means.

English
Q1 -- Yes, "have" means either one of those verbs. Q2 -- "Get" could mean buy or perhaps adopt (as from a rescue shelter for animals). It could also mean take, if it's a pet store employee who wants us to buy at least one!

English
All of them work, but #1 is best. #2 implies that he has other clothing at school in addition to his uniform. #3 is a bit awkward, but the meaning comes through.

English
Yes, 2 is one answer to 1. 3 also works fine, but 4 sounds more like a command. No child should use this when speaking to his parent! Maybe these: May I have ten more minutes, please? Can I have ten more minutes, please? Could I have ten more minutes, please?

English
Did you read and study the link Ms. Sue gave you? Even if you did, read it again ... and then rethink your last answer.

Yes, "sure" and "certain" mean the same thing here. In these sentences, "that" is a subordinating conjunction, I think. Another tutor may correct me! http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/conjunctions.htm#subordinating_conjunctions and http://...

English
2 and 4 are incorrect. The word "to" is not needed. The others are fine. The word "there" is an adverb, telling where.

English
All three mean the same thing. I can't believe he cleaned his room already. I'd be surprised if he cleaned his room by now.

No, "a" is an article, not a verb at all. Read carefully: https://www.englishgrammar101.com/module-3/verbs/lesson-3/linking-verbs

English
1 is fine -- and it's expressing a past possibility. 2 doesn't make sense because "yesterday" indicates the past, but the inference is in the future. 3 is a fact. It's done! 4 and 5 are possibilities, one present and one past. 6 and 7 are negative ...

English
2, 3, and 4 all mean approximately the same thing.

English
All are correct, and all are used. =) 1 and 3 mean it would be a bad choice not to do the action of the verb. 2 and 4 mean "I prefer..."

English
4 is similar to 3 above.

English
1. Right, he didn't give advice even though he could have. 2. I'd take this to mean he could have but didn't. 3. This is different. There is doubt whether he told a lie or not.

English
I'd remove the word "pet" since "The dog..." will be obvious. (Who lets wild dogs into their houses?!!) 1. The dog broke the plant. 2. The dog chewed up the plant. 3. The dog knocked the plant over. 4. The dog ate the plant. 5. The dog ruined the plant.

English
The correct ones are 1, 2 (maybe), 5, and 7.

You seem to be expecting others to do your thinking and writing for you. If you include what YOU THINK, a science tutor might be able to help, but you need to do some thinking first.

English
See your other post about these. Keeping the word "again" in there is a good idea for this particular expression. Most of the time "there you go" is a phrasing meaning "you're right" or something similar.

English
I've never heard the phrase "you put the bad-mouth on others" before. Does it mean "you insulted others"? In both 1 and 2, you have run-ons. You need to use periods after "go" and "again" not commas. 3 and 4 are correct. 4 is ...

English
Sentence 1 could mean either inside or outside the house. At first reading, I took it to mean inside, and if that's true, then sentence 2 is correct.

English
No, it's not quite right. Tom has a piece of paper, but his brother has two pieces (of paper). The words bread and coffee (and others) are like this, too. Remember your lessons on count-nouns and non-count-nouns?

English
1 can mean 4. 1 can also mean 'don't work so hard.' 2 and 3 mean the same thing.

English
1, 3, and 4 seem to be the closest in meaning. The words 'abandoned' and 'deserted' are synonyms. 'Stray' is very close. Missing dogs are those whose owners have reported their loss and want to get them back.

#1 is the best, but #2 could work, too. #s 3 and 4 are different. #s 5, 6, and 7 all would work for the master's question.

4 and 5 are similar in meaning, but not identical.

Aghedo is right. Do you see why #3 doesn't mean the same as either of the others?
