I ´ll have a go. Excuse any typoes I have a tiny tablet. 1)They must have taken the keys by mistake as they aren ´t thieves. 2) Fine 3) Fine but Ann not Ben. 4) Ana isn ´t as good a student as her sisters. 5) Although John had the money, he didn ´t lend it to his brother, which he should have. However, you have to use ´shouldn ´t ´. So ...which shouldn ´t have happened... 6) Fine 7) There was such danger... 8 and 9 fine 10) Fine, or ´never got used to living.. ´ 11) She felt such relief after talking about... Telling isn ´t right here... 12) Fine, but mail should be either email or letter. 13) Fine, and also ´after tidying... ´ 14) 15) not sure... 16) Fine. Tell you it rather than tell it to you, btw. 17) You had better not smoke. 18) We had slept/ been sleeping for 3 hours when she woke us. Hope this helps!
