Could you please tell me the meanings of the bracketed parts?
1. Although the distance between them was something less than two
hundred miles, [the train meandered to points far out of the way.]
2. His sister won fifty dollars [at a movie bank night].
Thanks a lot.
1. The distance between them was about 200 miles (as the crow flies).Originally Posted by chrischen
The course the train took was not a straightforward line, the train sort of zig zagged, moved back and forth through different stops, went in all different directions.
2. I am not sure what that means... a bank was sponsoring a movie?
