----The concert is large enough to hold more than 3,000 people.
---- ________________ Did you say 3,000?
A. Excuse me B. I'm sorry C. What a surprise D. What a shame
Which one should I choose?
It depends where you live.
In the USA I hear 'I'm sorry'; in the UK 'Excuse me'.
If I was simply asking the person to confirm or repeat what they had said, I would use "I'm sorry [I didn't quite catch that]. Did you say 3000?"
Thank you very much!
Thanks a lot!
By the way "The concert is large enough to hold more than 3000 people" doesn't really make sense. Should it have said "The concert hall" or "The concert venue"? A concert doesn't hold people. It's held in front of people (the audience).
