    Thank you Spiderkat for your corrections, but I doubt my teacher would be too strict on my sentences since I'm only in grade 9. The original question for number 6 (before it was translated) is, "Est-ce que tu as une responsabilit

    You're welcome. You should use attentive then.
    - attentif = masculine
    - attentive = feminine

    I just added some explanations about what would sound more natural to say. But I understand that you want to do exactly the way your teacher told or taught you.

    It seems to me, Spiderkat has disappeared somewhere.

    But anyway, maybe some time someone could correct my mistakes in these boring exercises. Thank you!

    And one more question, which variant is correct:
    L'homme ne sait pas voler comme l'oiseau.
    or
    L'homme ne sait pas voler comme un oiseau. ?

    Thank you!

    I would say both of these sentences are correct and the context will tell you which one sounds better.

    It's not okay if you use a pen but it is if you use a keyboard. Actually some programs will change "oe" into "œ" automatically.

    I can't imagine that it is completely correct!
    You're welcome, once again.

    I'm giving another chance to rephrase what you wanted to write in French.
