REPHRASING WITH VERB TAKE
I have been asked to rephrase this sentence with the verb take in past:
In a couple of years she lost 15 kilos.
My choice was It took a couple of years to lose 15 kilos
I was told that the right answer was " It took a couple of years 15 kilos" but I wasnīt explain why.
I donīt understand why my choice is wrong and I donīt see the grammar point of the correct answer.
Can you help? thanks a lot
Re: REPHRASING WITH VERB TAKE
Welcome to Using English.
The so-called 'correct' answer is nonsense.
Yours is closer. Add 'her' after 'took' and put a full stop at the end.
