and i've answer the taskes 1 and 2 and 4 But The tasks 3 i didn't ansewr be couse i didn't know how ?

Hello lyounsi,

You have to type either 'anyone' or 'someone' into the gaps in Task 3. For an explanation of how these two words work, see our indefinite pronouns page. And by the way, you can see the answers for any exercise by clicking on the Finish button (instead of Check Answers).

All the best,

May I know the meaning of Olivia's the first joking ''Well, wait here long enough, most of London will come in'' Please?

Hello Vicitta Lingara,

When Olivia says this, she is saying that if Johnny stands there long enough then he will be able to meet almost anyone... even if it takes several years!  It's funny because of the exaggeration.

Best wishes,
