    Hi Casiopea

    I don't understand what you mean: "Some fruit and fruits". Please elaborate.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused. (Btw is 'caused' necessary?)

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Casiopea

    Thanks for the website. In your earlier post, there was nothing for me to click on. That's why I was at a loss.

    Btw, can I ask you one more question. It is very common in letters and notices to say "Sorry for the inconvenience caused." My question is, is 'caused' necessary?

    Thanks a lot.

    All the best

    Sorry for the lack of clarity.

    1. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
    2. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Which is the correct sentence?

    Thanks in advance.
