    1. A - seems close but since "Soviet audiences have seen a great deal of coverage" it is more likely that some of the conference had been covered, so this is incorrect.

    B - awkward

    C and D - "alive" doesnt make sense to me.

    E - seems to be most appropriate. "not all" were cariied live but Soviet audiences saw a great deal of the coverage.

    2. I'll pick C.

    1.E (all...not suggest that no one saw. that leaves D and E. D is wrong because the subject is just too long communist part moscow....)
    2.A (the correct idiom is depict as. therefore depict to be is wrong. that leaves A,C and D) agree with explanation of vankata 8103

    Q1 : Its b/w A and E .
    imo E . Dont have the reason, just going by the common usage

    Q2: imo A.

    option C, coyotes are depicted as solitary animals howling mournfully on the tops of distant hills in films about the American West . Looks like, the morning is done on the films rather than saying on the hill top.
