    Default Formal or informal ?


    Hello,

    Is this sentence formal enough and correct?
    'It did not end up as I wished it ends'

    (I am talking about a presentation/disscusion)

    Thanks

    I have just noticed that this is the second time you have posted this question. Please do not start separate threads for the same question - it can lead to confusion.
