    subjunctice

    Hello,

    It is important she attend the meeting.

    1. It was essential that she be present.

    2. It may be important she attend the meeting.

    I always see the exprssions such as ''it is best...., it is a bad idea...,etc. for that reason I would like to ask if we can begin the sentence like sentence one and two. Must we begin always with 'it is' ?

    Thanks.

    If you want to get rid of "It is/was", you will have to change the sentence completely.
