I forgot to include the following sentences.
Could you please check these other sentences, too.
1) Rewrite the exercise three times after learning the use of reporting verbs.
2) Revise carefully the verbs followed by the infinitive and the gerund in your book and then do the exercise again.
3)You can't guess the prepositions. You need to study them first!
4) She apologized for keeping me waiting.
5) She excused for keeping me waiting. (Isn't excused followed by a noun? I don't think this sentence is possible)
6) I've been here for three days and I'm going to spend two more days here. (Can you help me express it better?)

  1. 1) OK

    2) Carefully revise the verbs followed by the infinitive and the gerund in your book, and then do the exercise again.

    3) OK

    4) OK

    5) She excused for keeping me waiting. (Isn't excused followed by a noun? I don't think this sentence is possible)
    (Yes, that verb needs a direct object in this construction. You could say, "She excused herself from the meeting." or "She apologized for keeping me waiting.")

    6) I've been here for three days and will stay for two more.
