    Hi fivejedjon,

    I have just got the key to the first question. It is "dried"!! I think it is a mistake. Do you think so?
    I send it to all the teachers who replied my question to all the teachers who replied my thread.

So, you will doubtless come across whole texts that are very unnatural, and uses of indvidual words and expressions that are extremely strange.

    When plants don't get enough water, they droop long before they dry. I think I'd argue that one.

    Hi J&K Tutoring,

    Thank you very much for your reply. When you say "I'd argue that one" I think you mean you don't think "dried" is correct.

    Or is it possible that the corn had already died? If that is the case how can we know whether it is drooping or died? What's more But the definition from Longman Contemporay English is "if a plant wilts, it bends over because it is too dry or old [↪ droop]". It does say it dies.
