Hi,my dear friends,
Is there any structure like this : 'wish+could?' For example, in the following test is the option "d" correct?
Regarding my own choice is 'c'.🤔

Hi again my dear friends,
I'm wondering why the writer has used the pronoun 'he' in the following passage, I mean "He seemed to know ...."
What is the reference of the pronoun 'he'?

My mother also says that I was good-looking even in later years. She adds, rather unkindly: 'He seemed to know that, too. Uncalled-for modesty was never a fault of his.'

Is it lexically correct too? For example, is it correct to put the adjective "complicated" before "information" in the first sentence? I mean in consideration of the existence of the adjective "confusing", complicated is a redundancy,isn't it?

Hi my dear friends,
Could you please tell me if the expression "made days earlier to" is an idiom or something else?
What's the meaning of the clause between commas?
Is it correct to say that "made (it) days earlier to" is synonym with "gave (it) days earlier to"?

She remained serene when she learned her appeal for clemency, made days earlier to the president of the republic, had been denied.
