We say... We don’t say...

Were you late for school today? Yes, I was. (NOT You were late for school today? Yes I was.)
Was she with her friends last Saturday? No, she wasn’t. (NOT She was with her friends last Saturday? No, she wasn’t.)
Was he tired yesterday? Yes, he was. (NOT He was tired yesterday? Yes, he was.)

(For a normal question we use was + pronoun. To show surprise you can use pronoun + was.)

HOW I PRINT MY SCORE CARD PLEASE HELP ME BECAUSE IT IS MY SCHOOL HOLIDAYS HOMEWORK

Hello LuckyWooden7, 
Sorry, it is not possible to print the scorecard for the game. I can help though. On your computer there should be a special button called 'Print Screen'. This will take a picture of the screen. You can then paste this picture into another program like Word and then you can print it.
