  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. The abbreviation "e.g." means "for example" and not "however." Either #1 or # is OK.

  2. To substitute real words for the abbreviation "e.g.", please use what SraJMcGin has told you.

    #1 = For example, if we watch TV too much, we cannot do other things.

    #2 = For example, if we watch too much TV, we cannot do other things.

    Please note that "cannot" is spelled as one word, not two.

    =)
