Answers

1. Remove ‘of’ (The sentence should read: Despite having a bad teacher she passed her exam. Use ‘despite’ or ‘in spite of’.)

2. Remove ‘have’; (The sentence should read: I met Julie yesterday at the club. We cannot use the present perfect tense with definite past time expressions.)

3. Remove either ‘though’ or ‘but’ (The sentence should read: Though she is fat she can run fast. / She is fat but she can run fast. We use just one conjunction to connect two clauses.)

4. Remove ‘has’ (The sentence should read: His father died in an accident two years ago.)

5. Remove either ‘as’ or ‘though’ (The sentence should read: Cold as / though it was we went out. You can learn about as and though here.)

6. Remove ‘so’ (The sentence should read: I haven’t got as much money as I thought.)

7. Remove ‘they’ (We have got food for as many people as want it.)

8. Remove ‘it’ (The sentence should read: I gave him as much as he could eat.)

9. Remove ‘she’ (The sentence should read: This is my friend Jaya, who works at a bank.)
