Hello every body.. I have three questions and I hope you will answer it.. I found this title in a newspaper: Nicotine Increasing In Cigarette 1-My question is: what is the kind of the word increasing?..Is it a present continuous or verbal noun? Or can we treat it as both?
2-And can I say : Increasing Nicotine is a bad thing
Considering increasing here as verbal noun(subject) not adjective like this sentence:
Playing football is good for you..
If yes (why?) .. if no(why?)
3-what is the difference between these words: public and general?
