1. 1
2. 2
3. 3
4. 4

Explanation:

'whether' is followed by 'or', so replace 'if' with 'whether', e.g., whether Sandy has passed the exam or not.

1. 1
2. 2
3. 3
4. 4
5. 5

Explanation:

A destination cannot be both 'thirty and forty' kilometers at the same time, so replace 'and' with 'or' in this sentence, e.g., was about thirty or forty kilometers to the west.
