1  I wonder if/whether would sound less hesitant:
     I wonder if/whether you could come tomorrow. (Why don't you come tomorrow?)
     I was wondering if/whether you could lend me a thousand pounds. (I do not know what you will say about this, but the fact is that I need that sum of money.)
2  If we use has come, we imply that it will take her a long time to come. The same goes for exercises b and d.
3  For could, see unit 22, section 2.
4  The simple form is not impossible in some cases where we have used the continuous form, but the continuous tense is a much better alternative.
5  The simple present is also possible in this section.
6  In this section, will is also possible instead of shall.
7  In the following sections, I shall only give the first alternative.
8  The first alternative in this section is far better than the second. In the next sections, I have only included the first one, usually.
