The pronoun refers back to 'many people', so it must be in the third person.
It should be 'consumer goods', not 'consumption goods'.Originally Posted by Sabinka
There is nothing wrong with this sentence in my opinion. Presumably, whoever set the question would prefer 'closed the road', but they are incorrect. "They have shut the road..." is perfectly acceptable grammatically.Originally Posted by Sabinka
The verb should be 'obligated' rather than 'obliged'. For example:Originally Posted by Sabinka
1) "John obliged me by saying something."
2) "John obligated me to say something."
It should be either "A proportion of the soldiers had no rifles" or "A part of the soldiery had no rifles."Originally Posted by Sabinka
Grammatically, 'in the accident' does not distribute back over the other two clauses. You should say "A man was killed in the accident, and five other people were wounded." I would say this is overly fussy though - the quoted sentence is commonly used, and would not cause ambiguity.Originally Posted by Sabinka
