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 roxanastella
I think this is quite a tricky exercise too!
If you click on the Finish button the right answers will show in the boxes on the exercise. You will then be able to print the page by using the print button or command on your web browser's toolbar. Try it, and let me know if you have any further problems.
I hope this helps
All the best

i am sorry i cannot understand this excesise plz help me regarding this page


In the exercise on this page, you need to fill in the gaps so that the sentences mean the same as the ones above them.

It's quite a difficult exercise, so don't worry if you can't complete it. Try something easier and come back to this one later.
