confusion with negation
 
Negate these sentences
I have some doubts about these sentences:

1- Negate

*) Ahmed does his homework requraly.

my problem is with the word requraly.


2-Negate keeping the same meaning:

*) Ahmed has always been honest for every one he knows


thanks in advance!

Hi Peace4ever
 
requraly?  Do you mean regularly?
 
Ahmed does his homework regularly-----Ahmed never does his homework.
OR   Ahmed doesn īt do his homework regularly.
 
Ahmed has always been honest to everyone he knows.
Ahmed has never been dishonest to anyone he knows.
 
Are you a student?  If you were a teacher, I think you īd already know these things Smile

These two sentences have the same meaning:
 
Ahmed has always been honest to everyone he knows.
Ahmed has never been dishonest to anyone he knows. (double negative)
 
The negative would be:
 
Ahmed has never been honest to anyone he knows.
