Hi, could you please explain when we say " come here" and when we should say " come over here".

pls clear the meaning of  "what's he up to" when olivia said in last sentance

Hello rkouhestani
When Olivia says what's he up to she means what is he doing, but using up to rather than doing tells us that she thinks Joe is probably doing something naughty.
There's a good explanation of in the Cambridge Dictionaries Online. Just type up to in the box to the right of this page and click on Look it up. Then choose "up to preposition DOING" from the list. If you have any questions after reading that page, just let us know in the comments section.’
I hope this helps
All the best

Joe is like my little brother.

I don't know why the sentences in all tasks do not appear
so i cannot answer the questions

Can you tell me which tasks don't have all the sentences? I will try to fix it, but I need to know exactly which part of the page has a problem. I don't see any problems on my computer, so you need to explain where you don't see sentences.

Hi , I have the same problem. its task 2

I can see the sentences in Task 2 OK. Can you tell me what you see instead of the sentences? Is there an error message or just an empty space? Does the exercise appear if you wait 30 seconds? Also, what web browser are you using?
