    Default Re: along or together

    Looks like you're asking us to do your homework?

    Which do you think is the right/wrong answer and why?
    That way, we can more easily understand why you may be having a problem and be better able to help.

    Best Regards

    I think b is correct because as far as I know "along" is used with "with".
