Penjelasan:
Remind = mengingatkan; kata remember = ingat; ingat untuk. Contoh: I remember you, I remember to post the letter, I remember going to Bali.

The rest = sisanya; sedangkan remains = sisa. (yang lainnya mungkin sudah habis atau hilang).
Contoh lain kata the rest. “There are 5 rooms; three rooms are for kitchen, living room and bed room. The rest are (the two others) still empty.
The rest are……. Jika sisa menunjukkan lebih dari satu. The rest is…. Jika sisa nya tidak menunjukkan jamak.

The same = hal yang sama. Di sini kata sandang “the” harus digunakan.
The same ………as……. Bukan “The same……like……

See about = deal with = mengurus.
Small not little untuk ukuran (baju dll.)
The shirts come in three sizes = Baju ini dibuat dalam 3 ukuran. Kata “come” digunakan untuk arti ini.
Fit = cocok ukurannya bukan pass.

Let me see if = let me find out = Nanti saya cari tahu, cari info.
