Q: Harry walked past classrooms where lessons were taking place, catching snatches of what was happening within ne anlama geliyor?
A: @Withkennchloe We don't know what is happening in the class. A "snatch" (noun) means a little bit of something. "To catch" is "to receive." The first part of the sentence (Harry walked past classrooms where lessons were taking place) is about Harry walking by classrooms. In the second part, (catching snatches of what was happening within) we are still talking about Harry. So Harry is "catching snatches" of classes, or "hearing and seeing a little bit" of the classes (as he goes by). Does that help at all? This is very hard!
Q: spotted Harry and hurried over ne anlama geliyor?
A: They saw harry
In this case Spotted = to see
