  1. 1) what happened instead of what has happened is wrong?
    thanks in advance for your replay

    1. No, both are possible here.

      N.B. You should say: Is it wrong to say “what happened” instead of “what has happened”?

  2. Good afternoon prof
    With reference to sentence n. 2, could I translate the first part in this way?
    “I had been seeing (I had seen) nothing of Bob for long time and ……..”

    1. “I had seen nothing of Bob for a long time…” is perfectly acceptable but not the continuous version which we tend not to use in the negative duration form.

  3. 26) is today’s sentence and people will be offering their solutions during the day, as you can!
    I will post my preferred solution tomorrow morning.

    P.S. In general we don’t use the definite article with numbers.
