  1. The only correct pattern is 5 (E).

    Please go back and study your text to learn about these sentence elements.

  2. 1.
    Visiting old mine shafts = subject (gerund phrase)

    can be = linking verb

    experience = predicate noun
    So, yes, "1f" is correct.

    Remodeling this house = subject (gerund phrase)

    has become = linking verb

    expensive = predicate adjective
    So, yes, "2d" is correct.


    Tell us about the rest of your sentences, and one of us will double-check your work.

  3. Writeacher is correct. I'm sorry, but I misread your answers.
