Hello yemelyanau,

I think the right answer could be: "Robert Bobby used to be called by everyone."

I hope that helps.

Hello Yemel and Phil,

This is a tricky one. The answer is:

Robert used to be called Bobby. = Robert's nickname used to be Bobby (by everyone).

Thanks for answering Phil.

Hello Minoo,

Of course, I should have seen it!

But it's always obvious afterwards 😀
