file vs queue
Hi all! I´m wondering whether you can help. I've got this exercise where you need to choose the correct option to complete the following sentence:
Would you spend all night in a rank/ queue/ file if there were a chance you could buy a real sale bargain?
Apparently, the correct option is only "queue", but file also means that, so what's the reason it's considered incorrect? Does it sound too American? (We're studying British English) Thanks
Re: file vs queue
I think in the US you "stand in line" rather than queue. I've never seen "file" or "rank" as a specific synonym.
