: Hi!
: I have two questions. Would you tell me which sentence sounds strange? My guess is 5. and 6. are not good.

: 1.Won't you please help me carry this baggage?
: 2.Wouldn't you please help me carry this baggage? (maybe sound very polite?)

: 3.As I looked at the picture, I thought this and that.
: 4.As I was looking at the picture, I thought this and that.
: 5.As I looked at the picture, I was thinking this and that.
: 6.As I was looking at the picture, I was thinking this and that.

: Thank you very mucu for your help.

: All the best,

: K. Yone

Number 2 sounds completly wrong the rest are OK.
