please advise. Tx
For 'No sooner', it must be followed by 'than' and
there is no comma in the sentence.
'No sooner' is used to compare 2 instances, hence 'than' is used.
Answer should be:
No sooner had the boy taken some money from the drawer
than his mother walked in.
If 'scarely' is used, it would go with 'when'
The boy had scarcely taken some money from
the drawer when his mother walked in.
For the second question, the answer is 'I'
- 'I' is used when it is used as a subject- the person does
My father and I went running. ('I' - doing the action of running)
-'me' is used when it is used as an object- the person does
not do the action
My father brought my brother and me to the park('me' receives
the action of the father's bringing and does not do the action of 'bringing' himself)
