I am the fifth in the end of the row.

AlexAlex, 2019/10/23 20:43

I am last but four in the row.

They live two houses away from us.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2019/10/26 15:19, 2019/10/26 15:19

Their house is last but one away from ours.

He finished the race fifth of the ten.

AlexAlex, 2019/10/26 19:19, 2019/10/26 19:23

He was last but five in the race.

I went into the house right after John and Peter.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2019/10/27 17:13

I was last but two who went into the house.

First came Lida, then Marta, then Nastya and finally Goga.

AlexAlex, 2019/10/28 21:28

Goga came last but three.

There are only three days left until the end of my vacation.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2019/10/30 15:55

There are last but two days left until the end of my vacation.

Bill was the third to come and I was the fourth.

AlexAlex, 2019/11/01 20:52

А the fourth в данном случае - это последний? Ведь last but… предполагает отсчет от последнего, а first but… не подойдет под задание.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2019/11/05 10:11

Верно. Тогда так: Bill was the third to come and I was the second.

AlexAlex, 2019/11/05 20:21, 2019/11/06 13:51

А что принципиально изменилось, если неизвестно, сколько человек отделяют этих участников от последнего? Кстати, поэтому мое первое задание They live two houses away from us некорректно, т.к. трансформируется только в next but one.

P.S. И второе мое задание тоже некорректно. Я делал по аналогии с рядом на фото, но у ряда-то два края/конца, а у последовательности только один.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2019/11/09 15:46, 2019/11/09 15:47

Да, конструкция мудреная. Вроде бы наречие, а употребление очень ограниченное. Спасибо.

AlexAlex, 2019/11/09 19:56, 2019/11/09 20:43

Продолжим тогда)

There are only two people behind me in the queue.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2019/11/12 18:59, 2019/11/12 18:59

OK. Two rounds.

I was last but two in the queue.

Bill was the third to come and I was the fourth - there were two more people to come.

AlexAlex, 2019/11/13 21:47

Bill was last but three to come and I was last but two.

It was October.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2019/11/19 12:12

The month was last but two.

It was Tuesday.

AlexAlex, 2019/11/19 20:20

It was last but four day of the week.

After I've been to London, Paris and Berlin next month I can say I've been to every capital in Europe. Now I'm in Rome.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2019/11/20 17:11

Now I'm in the last capital in Europe but three.

You are the best! THX.

AlexAlex, 2019/11/21 19:48

Thank you. We are all the best here.
