Question Description

  1. You shouldn’t feel sorry for people who work in that factory. After all, they chose to take those jobs.
  2. You said that Fred or Sally would be here. Well, Fred’s here, so I guess Sally isn’t.
  3. If they were repairing the bridge over the harbour, then there’d be a big traffic tie-up downtown. But they’re not repairing the bridge today, so the traffic downtown will be fine.
  4. You shouldn’t walk on the grass. If everybody did that, it would be terrible.
  5. My sister got a cookie, so I should too!
