    C'est pourquoi je vous remets ci-dessous ces exercices et mes réponses, et je vous redemande de bien vouloir m'indiquer si mes réponses sont correctes ou si elles peuvent être améliorées, car je les ai un peu modifiées. >BR> Je ne vous reparle plus du premier exercice car il a été corrigé et toutes mes réponses étaient bonnes, comme vous me l'aviez dit précédemment.

    Merci pour votre aide.
    Cordialement.

    SUITE ET FIN:

    Will the police investigate this crime? -> Answer: Yes, they will, the police must investigate that sort of crime.
    How will they investigate? What will they do? -> Answer: I think they will speak to the boys' parents who are still responsible for the boys as they are minors.
    Do you think the police will catch the two boys? -> Answer: yes, they will.
    If they do, what crime will they be charged with? -> Answer: they will both be charged with burglary.
    Can the boys sent to prison? -> Answer: no, I don't think so because it's only a burglary and not a murder and because of their age.
    What do you think the sentence would be? Do you think this is the correct sentence?
    -> I think they should be sent to a juveniles camp, or sentenced to community service. And I think it would be a good sentence for young delinquents because it's not good for them to be sent to a real prison.

    Bonsoir,

    peu d'erreurs....

    it's the police who must investigate crimes.
    Je trouve ls structure "it's ......who" assez maladroite, sauf erreur, un anglais accentuerait le sujet et dirait:
    The POLICE must investigate crimes.

    juvenile camp ou camps for juveniles, le premier élément d'un nom composé est invariable:

    shoe-laces are laces for your shoes.
    a toothbrush is a brush for your teeth.
    a class-room usually accommodates six or seven classes a day.

    Bonsoir,

    merci pour vos réponses Gerondif, mais pour "juvenile camp" je pense que je peux me contenter de mettre le nom "juvenile" au singulier, et que je n'ai pas à ajouter un trait d'union entre ces deux mots, contrairement à certains noms composés tels que "fifteen-year-old boys" par exemple.

    Sommes-nous d'accord?

    Merci pour votre aide.

    en effet !
    extrait du dictionnaire en ligne:
    He was tried as a minor and sentenced to six months in juvenile hall.(sans trait d'union!)




    Réponse: Law and trial /fin de bernard02, postée le 18-01-2012 à 00:17:57 (S | E)
    merci, mais est-ce que vous voulez dire que je devrais plutôt remplacer "juvenile camp" par "juvenile hall" (dans le contexte)?





    Réponse: Law and trial /fin de gerondif, postée le 18-01-2012 à 16:13:20 (S | E)
    Bonjour,
    les deux sont sans doute corrects, je ne connaissais pas juvenile hall avant de cliquer sur juvenile.
