    Hello notrepere,

    thanks, but there isn't anything else?

    Regards.

    Hello, I think everything else is OK but it's possible I missed something. If you have a specific question, let me know.

    Hello,

    "2 When you went to the theatre with Paul, who ….............. the tickets?
    → When you went to the theatre with Paul, who paid [ ] the tickets?".

    I don't understand. Should I write 'who paid for" instead of 'who paid the tickets'?

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Yes, the instructions say that you must include a preposition. "Complete the sentences using one of the following verbs (in the correct form) + the correct preposition"

    Lien internet


    I'll pay for the tickets.



    Réponse: Verbs and prepositions/help de bernard02, postée le 19-03-2012 à 05:58:18 (S | E)
    Hello,

    yes, but it is said also without preposition sometimes, for example: to pay a bill, a fare, a rent, a sum of money, and there it is said that we must put (-).
    So, I'll (see) have a look at your link because I don't understand very well when I must put 'for' (or not) (behind)after "pay".
    Regards.
