    Default homework-how would you fill in these blanks?

    1) The GP's (General Practitioner) office is called a ...
    2)Mum, I've cut my finger! Have you got a ... ?
    3) A ... is a doctor who specialises in a certain area of medicine.
    4) She's sprained her wrist, so her arm's in a ... at the moment.
    5) My mum put ... round my broken arm until we got to the hospital.
    6) I went to my ... to ask her for something for my stomach-ache.

    Those are the sentences I'm having problems with. The exercise consists of 30 sentences which blanks are to be filled in with words given in a list. Some of the words I think may be right for the sentences above are: sick, GP (General Practitioner), in plaster, a plaster, sling, consultant, and bandage.

    Any help will be much appreciated

    HI Madgelina, please give your own try yourself next time, we do not do homework on this forum
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."

    It would be imensely helpful to have the list of words in order to be certain that you get the correct answer. My answers are based on what I think they might be in the U.S. but they might not be on your list. Use of the word "mum" suggests that this is an excercise in British English so the list is important.

    Este hilo no solo está repetido sino que a la persona en cuestión le han hecho los deberes dos veces. Eso no ayuda a nadie, sobre todo no a ella.

    This thead might have been repeated simply by accident and there is no reason to become upset over the repetition nor the request. There is no strict policy against helping with homework. Some of us don't mind. As for me I think any thread that generates interest and discussion is of value. We have had many good exchanges as a result of a simple request. If the original poster does not learn from from it, that should not be our concern. It might offend our members who are classroom teachers but the real question is whether members of the forum learn anything by the exchange of ideas the post generates.

    Justamente mi amiga Exx ... su pedido fue muy cortéz y honesto. No le veo lo malo en ayudar a alguien que se trabó en unas palabras. Eso no quiere decir que le vamos a hacer la tarea a medio mundo, pero sí que cada uno de nosotros es libre de contestar si así lo desea. (como aquel hilo con palabras ofensivas para algunos, pero necesarias de traducción para otros, recuerdas?)

    Un beso,
    Mer
