    I have no idea what you are asking.

    the first sentence is :
    1-They finished sooner than we had expected.

    i have to fill in the blanks (which is just below) using the verb "take" and the sentence must be like that:
    They didn't ................... we had expected to finish.

    If you copied the question verbatim, we might be able to help you. As it stands, nobody knows what you are asking.

    Complete the second sentence so that it has a similar meaning to the first sentence. Use the word given to complete each sentence.You must use between two and five words. Do not change the word given.

    1-They finished sooner than we had expected.

    (the word given is:) "take"

    2-They didn't ....................... we had expected to finish.

    so, i have to fill in the blank with the word "take".
    i hope it is more clear now..

    Is English your native language? I don't see any difficulty in that.

    A certain three-word time-related conjunction would help...

    is the answer :

    They didn't take as long as we had expected to finish. ??

    "They didn't take as long as we had expected to finish." is a good answer. It's probably the one I'd go with.
