Short text about Edinburgh and Grammar exercises

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland. It has a beautiful old city centre and a castle that lies on a hill above the city. In the castle you can see the statues of two Scottish heroes: Robert Bruce and William Wallace (known from the film Braveheart).

Edinburgh Castle

Several famous people were born in Edinburgh, for example Alexander Graham Bell (who invented the telephone), Tony Blair (Prime Minister) and Arthur Conan Doyle (who wrote the Sherlock Holmes stories). By the way, J. K. Rowling wrote her first Harry Potter book in an Edinburgh coffee-shop.

2) Some years ago he (study) English there.
3) Last month he (visit) some friends in Edinburgh.
4) Unfortunately, I (can / not) go to Edinburgh with him.
