    This are the instructions guys

    complete the second sentence so that it has a similar meaning to the first sentence, using the word given.
    Do not change the word given. You must use between two and five words, including the word given.

    possibly in your closet
    1. My friend asked me where I bought my coat.
    2. We arrived on time, in spite of the traffic. (I think despite would be better than spite, but whatever)
    3. You ought to have been here half an hour ago! EDIT: wrong tense, thanks pedeadstrian!
    4. I was very tired because I am not used to walking that far.

    Best of luck in your studies!

    "in spite of the traffic" or "despite the traffic" would work equally well. You can't really tell the teacher "Hey, these words you want us to define suck." Gotta work with what you're given.
    "You ought to have been here half an hour ago" sounds better (at least to me).

    I know, I know. Just my own two cents.
    I don't know what I was thinking, haha.

    "Ought"?

    First time I've ever seen this word.
    (Ps: English is my second language)
