Below are 2 questions on transformation.

1. We never imagined that he would win the scholarship.
(Start with: Little.....)
1. Little did we ever imagine that he would win the scholarship.

2. Anna has not gone for a swim for five years.
(Start with: The last time..)
2. The last time that Anna had gone for a swim was five years ago.

Are the sentences in bold correctly transformed as shown above?

Many thanks.

@George,
1. We never imagined that he would win the scholarship.
(Start with: Little.....)
1. Little did we ever imagine that he would win the scholarship.

1 is correct.

2. Anna has not gone for a swim for five years.
(Start with: The last time..)

Should be transformed thus, in my opinion:

The last time that Anna went for a swim was five years ago.
