"Don't bother calling for help, we've put everyone to sleep. What do you want to do now? Don't call for the soldiers because soldiers are not better than the police."

"Everyone is asleep, so I wouldn't bother trying to call for help. What would happen if you did? Well, perhaps the soldiers would show up instead of the police. You wouldn't want that to happen would you?"

"We've tried to help you call for help, but it seems everyone is asleep. What do you want to do now? Would you like to call for soldiers? Want us to call them for you? Soldiers are better than police, right?"

    Explanation: To find the better translation of the tief-man's words, we must analyze each sentence of the passage. "we don try our best for call dem but I tink say dem all done sleep-o" means "We've tried to help you call for help, but it seems everyone is asleep", then we have questions: "So wetin we go do now?" "Sometaim you wan call soja?" which mean "What do you want to do now?" "Would you like to call for soldiers?" and the last two sentences: "Or you wan make we call dem for you?" "Soja better pass police. No be so?" which translate to: "Want us to call them for you?" "Soldiers are better than police, right?"

  • Answer:

    D."We've tried to help you call for help, but it seems everyone is asleep. What do you want to do now? Would you like to call for soldiers? Want us to call them for you? Soldiers are better than police, right?"
