Hello, native English speakers,

I'm a high school teacher and making the final exam for the 11th graders.
Could anyone help me, please ?


Do all the following sentences sound right?

2. We were able to meet President Obama yesterday.
3. I left home earlier than usual this morning.
4. This baggage/luggage weighs ten kilograms.
5. Would/Could you help me with cooking?
6. Making noise when/while eating noodles is not bad manners in Japan.
7. I wonder if Mary will get there on time.
8. I want you to see how far I can go as a professional player.
9. It is difficult to remember how often my sister and I used to fight.
10. I saw/watched this movie for the first time when I was ten (years old).
11. Who did you go to see the ball game with?
12. I'm busy (right) now. I'll call you back later.
13. My sister jogs every morning to lose weight.
14. There are a lot of places/sights to see in Kyoto.
15. Have you ever seen Tom wearing glasses?

Any questions that I haven't commented on I think are fine (and when there's more than one option in the question (e.g.., would/could), all options are OK).

5. Would/Could/Can you help me with the cooking?

These are the only changes I could see that I would make. Everything else seems correct and natural to me.

Thanks for your help, Lothor, OoTmaster, and mdchachi.
mdchachi, I'm afraid I can't comment on your thread now. Please wait until I have free time.
