Mohammed, is there any chance that you have been using Google Translate for
this?  I'm concerned about this because there does not seem to be a verb in
the first sentence that you have translated into Spanish, but it does match
what Google Translate produces  (Google Translate incorrectly interprets
the word "complete" as if it were an adjective instead of a verb ("a
complete mistake" instead of "students finished it").
