2 When did they first meet?
They first meet did thirteen years ago.


They first meet thirteen years ago. (you don´t repeat the "did" in the answer), there´s a "did" used for emphasis, but it may be subject of other thread.



===============
In fact, I wasn´t proofreading your writings, I was just skimming them and, all of sudden, this caught my eyes (many would say caught my eye). So, if there´s more things that "got away with it" others might point out.
Keep up the good work.
