  3. Rahul seems to have applied for the wrong job.

  4. His uncle told him not to drink at the time of driving to avoid driving recklessly.

So are the my answers correct?

Best Answer

For Someone had cut John's hair., I would say—

John's hair had been cut by someone.

or

John had had his hair cut by someone.

The sentences in number 4 are a little odd, and it's not exactly clear what's being said, but I'd go for something like this:

His uncle instructed him not to drive recklessly by drinking.

If "at this time" is important (even though it's not clear what time is meant—while driving? Who drinks when actually driving?), it might be better to stay non-committal:

His uncle instructed him not to drive recklessly, and told him not to drink at that time.

or

His uncle instructed him not to drive recklessly, telling him not to drink at that time.
