Interesting to see how nobody has identified the repetition in number 1.

Natives don't repeat words very often in the same sentence. If we say 'cigarettes' in the first half of a sentence, we will always say 'them' in the second half.

1. If there were a ban on cigarette, fewer people would smoke cigarette.
2. If the tax rate on junk food had increased, people would have preferred making food at home. (likely has the same meaning as if conditional sentence, this type 3 conditional sentence means not possible to happen)
3. If schools administered with any teachers, disorder and lawlessness would rise.
4. If uncensored commercials had been banned, the crime rate would have been seized from rising.

ANSWERS FROM SIMON

First, here are the problems:

1. We need the plural 'cigarettes', and it would be better if we didn't repeat this word. Also, the second conditional uses 'were' instead of 'was' (although you'll hear native speakers breaking this rule). Finally, stictly speaking we should write 'fewer people' instead of 'less people' (although you'll hear native speakers breaking this rule too!).

2. We need the past 'increased' instead of the past perfect 'had increased'. Also 'would likely to' is wrong.

3. 'with any' is wrong because it doesn't express a negative. We need to write 'without any'. Also, this person was trying too hard to use 'difficult' words; I would change 'administered', 'disorder' and 'lawlessness'. This last word in particular is much too extreme for this topic!

4. The use of 'uncensored' doesn't work here. We also need to change the verb phrase from the past perfect passive to the past simple passive ('had been banned' to 'were banned'). Finally, we don't say 'seized from rising'.

FROM SIMON

Now, here are my corrected versions:

1. If there were a ban on cigarettes, fewer people would smoke.

OR:

1. If cigarettes were banned, fewer people would smoke.

2. If the tax rate on junk food were increased, more people would choose to eat at home.

3. If schools were run without teachers, the behaviour of pupils would be much worse.

4. If commercials were banned, the crime rate would fall.*

*I'm not sure what the link is between advertising and crime, but this is what the student wanted to say.
