補足

夜分にご回答ありがとうございます。

3. She told me very intresting STORIES.

問題文再確認しましたが”story”とされてるようでした。
出典側の不備(?)かもしれません。

13.Did you ever see him smile?
-> Was he ever seen TO smile?

こちら”Was he ever seen...”でよしとの見解頂いてるように思えますが。
私が言うのもなんですがなんか変な言い方のような気がして。。。
とくにおかしくないでしょうか?
Was → Had
とかしたら飛躍でしょうか。。。
ご指摘のように本問奇妙な問題が多いとは思っておりますが。

ANo.3

3. She told me very intresting story.
出題ミスです。a very interesting story です。

4 the radio, the electric waves とします。文明の利器には the をつけます。この文には discovery があるのでこの意味が出やすいです。

6 trees とします。

7Great care of them had to be taken by us.

9 この look は自動詞なので受動態にはなりません。
「彼を見上げる」は look up at him です。

10. The police lost sight of the criminal. (The criminal ...)
The sight of the criminal was lost by the police.

11. Something was felt to move in the darkness.
知覚動詞の後に受動態が続く場合は、to 不定詞にします。

12 a certain 単数形にします。

13. Was he ever seen to smile?
知覚動詞の後に受動態が続く場合は、to 不定詞にします。

14. Who will take after the children?
出題のミスです。

ANo.1

やってあげようかとおもってひらいたけど、添削ご確認くださいという日本語があまりにも不適切で失礼なのでやまました。

ひとのてをわずらわせるのに、確認してくださいはないでしょう!!いくらひまでもいやです。自分でどうぞ。

補足

悪意はありませんが、気分を害されたらすみません。
”添削お願いします”も捉え方によっては一方的な要求にも思え、不躾に思えたため、強制的な末尾を軽くする意味で”ご確認ください”と意図的に添えましたが、意に反した形となりました。

英語以前に、日本語は難しいですね。(笑)
