Section 6 "Caroline". Exercise 2 - Question 2/9:
Answer incorrect: "I think I don't have". I don't understand why this answer is incorrect. I can't see the differences between the 4 answers.
It's the same with the Question 9/9. Answer incorrect: "What is the cost for the medicines?".
 

Hello Forcedlanding!
 
Both these questions are about how we usually say things in English. 'I think I don't have' sort of means the same as the other answers, but we just don't use it in English. Likewise, in Question 9, 'What is the cost for the medicines?' is understandable, but not a good answer partly because you need to say 'cost of…' and partly because most native speakers simply wouldn't use 'cost of' to ask about prices in a shop. Don't worry about it too much – if people can understand, that's good enough, and knowing what's OK and what's not is what this exercise practices!

And I want to say them huge thank you. They are real celebrities, because the whole world listening them.  You have to know guys that I realy like you and what you doing for us)) And I want to see you. Maybe you can make only one video podcust for listeners, who feels full of curiosity. And I want to ask them, do they feel that they are realy celebrities? How many fans they have in the world?
