Then I (COME) across a book on Greek mythology which had been published in 1892. It looked like a very rare and valuable book, but the problem was that it (NOT/SEEM) to have belonged to my uncle at all! It had been borrowed from London University Library. I decided that the (GOOD) thing I could do was to return the book to London University Library. I went to the library and gave it to the librarian, who (LOOK) very worried.

I couldn't talk to her about Agnes with Mr Nixon sitting at the table.
