    They have mowed their lawn.

    Explanation
    Both "They have had their lawn mown" and "They have had their lawn mowed" are correct answers. The verb "mow" can be used in two different ways - as a transitive verb or as a past participle. In the first sentence, "mown" is the past participle form of "mow" and in the second sentence, "mowed" is the past participle form. Both forms are acceptable and commonly used when talking about someone taking care of their lawn.

    Rate this question:

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    You must get somebody to replace the door.

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "You must get the door replaced." This answer is correct because it conveys the same meaning as the original sentence. Both sentences suggest that someone needs to find a person to replace the door. The use of "get" implies that the action of replacing the door should be done by someone else, rather than the person speaking. The word "replaced" indicates that the door needs to be substituted with a new one.

The use of "have had" suggests that someone else performed the installation for us.
