    Default Resulted

    I have a sentence:
    Mary made mistakes because she refused to listen to advice
    I will transform it with the word given Resulted
    --> Mary's mistakes was resulted in by the refusal to listen to advice

    Is the sentence above right or not?




    * It's not an assignment, though.

    It's not good like that. The mistakes she makes are the result of her refusal to listen. So the scentence should be:

    Mary's refusal to listen to advice has resulted in mistakes.

    Or; Mary's mistakes were the result of her refusal to listen to advice.

    Default Re: Resulted

    I've expected some help from a trinity, they gave me the answer like that:
    Mary’s mistake resulted from her refusal to listen to advice.
    Are they wrong?



    But Miner, the word given is Resulted , not result

    You wrote:

    I corrected into:
    Mary's refusal to listen to advice has resulted in mistakes.

    And gave the explanation:
    The mistakes she makes are the result of her refusal to listen.

    Your trinity wrote:
    Mary’s mistake resulted from her refusal to listen to advice.

    Seems also OK to me. (Many roads lead to Rome )

    Nah, I just want to ask:
    From the sentence: Mary made mistakes because she refused to listen to advice
    You must write it in this from:
    Mary's mistakes ____________ the refusal to listen to advice

    If I write:

    Mary's mistakes was resulted in by the refusal to listen to advice
    Is it right or not?

    And if it isn't, is the trinity right?


    If the trinity right, please explain my why, b/c I only learn that : Resulted goes with "in", not "from"

    You must write it in this form:
    Mary's mistakes ____________ the refusal to listen to advice

    If I write:

    Mary's mistakes was resulted in by the refusal to listen to advice
    Is it right or not? I told you it is wrong (please read my post)

    And if it isn't, is the trinity right? I told you it is right (please read my post)


    If the trinity is right, please explain (me) why, b/c I only have learned that : Resulted goes with "in", not "from"
    Always welcome

    Hehe,... So you see, teachers are only members of the human kind.


    - The accident resulted from an accumulation of wrong decisions and mechanical failure.

    But if you turn the scentence around like this, you have to use "resulted in"

    An accumulation of wrong decisions and mechanical failure resulted in an accident.
