3. Can you tell me the story in detail?
4. Airplanes reach America quickly.
5. Long ago there was no one there.
6. This story is very interesting. (Too has a negative meaning. It should not be used to convey positive ideas.)
7. He behaved in a cowardly manner. (Cowardly is an adjective. To modify verbs we use adverbs.)
8. He plays better than me. (Than should be preceded by an adjective in the comparative degree.)
9. Hardly have I had any rest since morning. (Sentences beginning with a negative word have an inverted word order. That means the verb comes before the subject.)
