- For Teachers
Is on at at the following sentence an optional word ?
Can I delete it ?
The number of shoppers plunged by up to 23 per cent since then on
*Not a Teacher*
" The number of shoppers has plunged by up to 23 percent since then. "
-- "Since then on" doesn't make much sense at the end of that sentence.
No, it's wrong. It should read:
The number of shoppers plunged by up to 23 per cent from then on. Or:The number of shoppers has plunged by up to 23 per cent since then.
It's still a lttle odd with the 'up to'. Either it plunged by 23% or it didn't.
ps. You are too fast for me, SlickVic.
