the rich? rich?
I happened to see a sentence like this.
The gap between rich and poor is widening.
Is it okay to say "between rich and poor"?
I thought "the" is necessary before rich, like "between the rich and (the)poor".
Re: the rich? rich?
Yes, it's fine, it assumes 'people' 'The gap between rich and poor (people) is widening'.
