you and they

 

We use you to talk about people in general including the speaker and the hearer:

You can buy this book anywhere > This book is on sale everywhere.
You can’t park here > Parking is not allowed here.
They don’t let you smoke in here > No smoking here

We use they or them to talk about people in general:

They serve good food here.
Ask them for a cheaper ticket.

… especially about the government and the authorities:

They don’t let you smoke in here.
They are going to increase taxes.
They are building a new motorway.
They say it’s going to rain tomorrow.

Hello vivek_ag2000,

This is a transformation exercises in which the sentence should remain the same except for the element being tested ('they' and 'you').  That means that the verb form ('going to') should stay the same, not be changed to 'will' or 'would'.

You can see the correct answers by clicking 'Finish' rather than 'Check Answers' (which only shows you which were correct and which incorrect).

Best wishes,

Very helpful site.thank you so much indeed.

Hi! How can I view the correct answer of the above test?

Hi babymavi,

Click on the 'Finish' button when you have completed all the questions and you'll see how you did, and the correct answers to the questions you got wrong.  During the task, you can click on 'Check answers' to see how you are doing on each individual question.

Best wishes,

Click "Finish", you will see all potential correct answers at each question ;-)

Hi I would like to ask to you if the question '' How do I get from Paris to London '' is write. If it's not ,why?

Hi FILIPOIMIN,

That sentence is fine, apart from lacking a question mark at the end.

Don't forget the difference between 'right' and 'write' by the way!

Best wishes,
