Sentence structure

Post by Goldenboy » Tue May 22, 2018 5:14 pm

What are the differences between the sentences below? I use them all the time, but I don't know if I use them in the right content. Is backshift optional in the two sentences?

1.Do you have the keys to flat 64?

2.Do you have the keys for flat 64?

3.Please advise if you wish to proceed with your order.

4.Please confirm if you wish to give access to the engineer to replace your lock.

5.Please advise if you wish to give access to the engineer to replace your lock.

6.I sent her the pictures, but she hasn't responded to my email.

7. I sent her the pictures, but she hadn't responded to my email.
