    Please could you help with this exercise ?
    ( at least one sentence ) or help me to find similar examples.
    Thank you!

    Exercise 11 b
    This is a more difficult exercise, the purpose of which is to stimulate discussion rather than to produce solutions. There are more types of problem involving ellipsis than were illustrated in 11.7. The following sentences are felt to be unsatisfactory in one way or another. They do not, however, violate 'Rule' C as it stands.
    (i) Divide the sentences below into three or more different types,according to the types of elliptical construction they illustrate.
    () Try to describe what might be thought unsatisfactory about each type.
    (i) Try to revise the conditions of 'Rule' C so that the 'rule' does not allow sentences of these kinds.
    (iv) Revise each sentence so as to avoid the difficulty.
    [A CLUE: note that all the sentences contain coordination. TIPS: (a) Insert the caret (A) where ellipsis occurs; (b) place in angle brackets the elements which are yoked together by coordination.]
    The questions :
    1. They captured and put him in prison.
    2. She was young, attractive, and enjoyed life to the full.
    3. Either the children did not know what had happened, or were trying to protect their parents.
