    Urgent!!!

    Are these phrases correct?

    "As days passed, he himself included me when he did those intresting things."
    "Suprisingly, he always had an answer for every question" (question or questions?)
    "She wanted to take a or the Biomedical course"?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: Urgent!!!

    1. I like "As the days passed..." also, I don't like using constructions like "he, himself; I, myself; or you, yourself. If you want to say that, you can, but put a comma between the two pronouns.

    2. The word every like the word each can only modify a singular.

    3. She wanted to take a biomedical course if they offer more than one.
    She wanted to take the biomedical course if they offer only one.

    Note the lower-case b in biomedical. Since it is the subject of the course, not the title of the course, it wouldn't be capitalized.
