SALEHA:The first verb is in the simple past--you need the past perfect;-)
YOSUA:You are missing the first clause which needs a verb in the past perfect;-)
ZEINAB: You need to add punctuation;-)
VALERIE: OK--but your clauses are in the wrong order--you do need to follow exactly the instructions;-)
NAZNEEN: Well done!
PEGGY: Good--but can you fix the article error?
