ANSWERS

1. In the ‘past’.

2. Translation – should be: ‘at present’.

3. ‘Due to’ should not go at the beginning of a sentence – should be: ‘We have western products in my country, due to globalization’.

4. ‘Social’ is an adjective – should be: ‘society’ (n).

5. ‘Jam’ or ‘traffic jam’ are nouns – here you need an adjective to describe the traffic, so it should be: ‘The traffic is very jammed’. However, that is not natural usage – probably better to say ‘The traffic is very bad’.
