Solution

a) I am shocked to hear that you had an accident.

b) Your brother told me about it the other day. (We need a past tense to refer to the past.)

c) I was relieved to hear that the accident was not serious. (A singular countable noun must have an article or another determiner with it. When we introduce a noun for the first time, we use ‘a/an’ with it. We use ‘the’ in all subsequent references to that noun.)

d) I hope that you will be able to leave hospital soon.

e) You had better follow the advice of the doctor. (After ‘had better’, we use the first form of the verb.)
