I just want you to paraphrase the following sentence or put it in a correct way.
Whoever comes first can occupy the front seat.
(meaning: In college the front seat can be occupied by anyone who comes first).
Can I say like this: One who comes first can occupy the front seat.
Thank you in advance.
5jj has answered your question. I would like to add that usually there's more than just one front seat. Are you not referring to the front row of seats?
It is just an example. So, I didn't think that I should be technically correct.
My question should mean that" First come first serve".
If there is only one ticket available in the theater. Four people rang up and checking the availability of the tickets.
What would the person on the other side of the phone(one who sells ticket...Is there any particular word for that?) should say?
One who comes first can get the ticket.
Why is this wrong?
Whoever comes first can get the ticket.(Please tell me another way of telling this).
