    This is not really as stupid a comment as I want to make, so I will ask a question...IS THIS YOUR HOMEWORK?

    OK, so I am back again :/

    1 modifies or describes the verb or pred - looks

    2 Break the sentence down to most obvious sub and verb... The men finished...what would be the simple verb or pred? answer this if you can to see if you are on right me the answer

    3 The answer would be B for the same reason that C is correct! If the word ends in s, the possessive ' follows the s and no further s is added.? Got it?

    4 I think the answer might be C but at this point I can't tell you why

    5 Syn of look in this case would be scrutinize (to pick apart as in study) A intimates as a man would improperly look at or "ogle" a cute girl to "survey" or "view" intimates as to look over a wide space such as a valley

    Is any of this making sense? I will send you more if you wish?
