Q: O que significa I haven`t arranged this with anybody.?
A: "To arrange" is to make or to put together something in a certain position/order. Making plans is putting tasks you need to do in a certain order, so in this context: "arranging" = "planning/making plans"

So, the sentence could mean, "I haven't made plans about this with anybody."

Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com don t and not.I don t know when to use it.And I don t know if i write correctly that.
A: We will start with looking at the origins of don’t. Don’t is actually an abbreviation of do not, and is the synonym (opposite to) do. Not makes the sentence negative. Do is a verb which can be replaced with other action words to better express what is being explained.

Examples of opposites.
Love____ hate
Found____lost
Problems____solutions
Do____do not (don’t)

Don’t touch me! (Do not touch me!)
Don’t do it again! I’m warning you.
Don’t speak to me like that.

You can also see that don’t is used as a command here.

Not is like an exclusion of a phrase which proceeds (comes after the word) not.

I’m not finding what you are saying useful. (It makes finding negative, meaning you are still lost).
I’m not going to say it again. (Not means that there will be no further of the following in the future).
I’m not coming home next week. I’ll see you in a month (means that others will not see you arrive for the time being, until a month has passed.)


Another difference is that don’t may be used more colloquially than not. There are more useful phrases you can use such as shouldn’t which is more contextually sound. Should is a softer phrase suggesting something should be done without the command connotations.

You shouldn’t try that again instead of don’t try that again.
You shouldn’t breathe on the food instead of don’t breathe on the food.
Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com whom . I can t understand the meaning of this word . And would you please give me some sentences using whom .

Q: Qual é a diferença entre I don`t forget walking along the river e I remember walking along the river ?
A: Both mean the same thing, except "I don't forget walking along the river" makes no sense, it's not grammatically correct, the tenses are mixed up. "Don't" implies a more present/future tense, for example "Don't turn on the television" or "Don't eat the cake".
So if you want to say it in that sense, you wouldn't use "don't", you could use "didn't" but that would change the whole point of what you're trying to say because I'm guessing you're trying to say that you recall walking along the river. If you used "didn't", it would imply that you had to do something (walk along the river) and you remembered to do it, and in order to make that grammatically correct, you would also change "walking" to "walk"
— "I didn't forget to walk along the river".

Long story short, as you're saying that you've walked along the river before, and you remember it, you would say "I remember walking along the river".
