I need to rephrase these sentences with the word given, the problem is that the word has to remain unchanged

1. Sam is going to have a tooth extracted this afternoon
(PULL) Sam is going to have a tooth __________________this afternoon

2. I īd like to ave the photo enlarged
(BLOW) I īd like to have the photo ______________________.

3. Rod īs going to apply for a job, but the fact that he has so little experience will make it less likely for him to get a job.
(TELL) Rod īs going to apply for the job, but the fact that he has so little experience will __________________ him.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there :)

If you have to rephrase those sentences without changing the word given, i īd suggest using the causative in the active form:

1.Sam will have a dentist pull her tooth.

2.I will get someone to blow up the photo.

3. I will have my mom tell Rod that the fact that he has so little experience will make it less likely for him to get a job??????


hahaha weird...  sure you got the directions right?

Greetings!!!

Thanks anyway, could of course be a typo of some sort, but it specified that the word have so remain unchanged. What do you think of this:
Sam is going to have a tooth pull-out (but it sounds weird, doesnīt it?)

The rubric probably indicates that you shouldn īt change the given verb - although obviously its form will have to change (nothing makes sense otherwise - a "tooth pull-out"?? I donīt think so).

Ed īs right with 1. (pulled) and 2. (blown up). I would suggest that the expression for 3. is tell against (to have a negative influence or effect...).
