I can't pass Task 4 because I don't understand these sentences fully.Please help me.

Hello Yin Yin,

I'd suggest you click on the Finish button to see the answers. Just look at the first one or two answers, and then see if you can complete the exercise yourself. Essentially, you have to use a passive form of a reporting verb (e.g. in number 1, 'is said') and then an infinitive (in number 1, 'to be').

I hope this helps!

I could not do the exercise 4. I do not understand. please I need help. thanks.

Hello Tereza,

The exercise is designed to practise the passive form 'is ..... to [be]' where the missing word is related to what people think or say:

He is said to be very rich.

The monster is believed to live in Amazonia.

Polynesians are thought to have travelled thousands of kilometres across the Pacific.

Try to complete each sentence in a similar way, using the word given in brackets. You can click 'Finish' to see the answers at any time.

Best wishes,

thank you very much. I will try again.

I solved the exercise. Thanks!

i guess in my city almost everyday is sunny. i live in cancun MX and we have beautiful beaches and the ruins of the mayas, a lot of fauna and so many things you can do to explore all the landscape we have. there're a lot of natural parks to visit and a incredibly sea food and you're going to have an amaizing experience.

Hello there. Firstly there are amazing scenes of clip . Secondly I would like to ask about if there is difference between stunning and picturesque. Eventually thank you for your kindness.

Hello Alhussien,

The best way to find the answer to vocabulary questions like this one is to use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online tool on the right of the page. Just type the word into the search box and click 'Look it up!' to get a definition, examples, grammatical and pronunciation information and more. It's a great tool.

Best wishes,
