S1:It is the first time the painting is being displayed.
S2:The painting is being displayed for the first time.
In the above two sentences, which one makes more sense?
PLUS one other question, should I say:
The shop's utensils or The utensils (of or in???) the shop?
Similarly, the car's headlights or the headlights of the car?
Thanks for helping, teachers! ^o^
The second sentence makes more sense.
With common collocation, we often use the first noun as an adjective, rather than a possessive, so I would say 'car headlights'. However, the possessive could be used when talking about a specific car.
