Can someone translate the following questions? My book once again is utilising things it hasn't yet taught me.

1. だれがおそくなりましたか

2. けんさん/みちこさんはなんぷんぐらいまちましたか。

Thanks.

1) "Who was late".

It's formed from おそい + なる,

2) なんぷん is 何分 - how many minutes. ぐらい・ぐらい = about/approximately. Can you work it out from those?

Oh I understand now. Sorry, I've been in hospital for a few days and haven't been able to study. Thanks for jogging my memory :p
