Hello chechak,

They all look ok to me, but here are a few comments. For number 1, really both answers are correct. 'as' would normally be the correct answer, but 'so' is possible in a negative construction (like this one). For number 7, I'd probably just say 'find', but 'can find' could be correct in some contexts.

All the best,

Does the magic work! It does not with me!

It was a nice trick, but finally the result of the magician was incorrect.
