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:

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.

Hi orela.hbelliu,

In most exams correct puncuation is seen as part of the language and is therefore part of the assessment.  However, different exams may have different rules in this regard, or may treat such errors more or less seriously - this will depend on the particular exam in question.

It sometime says here with no preposition in, and sometime says in here.when to use in and when not to?

Hello aarushmom,

here is used to a space in general. The preposition in is used with here to refer to a more specific, usually enclosed, space. There isn't enough context for me to be able to say for sure, but in the sentence "They don’t let you smoke in here", I suppose in here refers to a room or other indoor space.

Hi saramaster,

In this exercise you need to write a second sentence which means the same as the first and which begins with the word given ('you' or 'they').  Read the instructions carefully and look at the example, then try to produce a similar answer.  You can click 'Check answers' to see if you are right or wrong, and click 'Finish' to see the key.
