    The Air

    Dear Teachers,

    A. I like London very much because it's very modern and developing. It also helps people's lives better and the air is very fresh and clean.
    - Is this sentence grammatical?

    Thanks a million!

    I like London very much because it's very modern and developing. - I'd use developed/adavnced here.

    It also helps people's lives better and the air is very fresh and clean. - The first part is not natural. How about 'The quality of life is good and the air...'?

    'The air is fresh and clean' is grammatically fine. Factually, I'm not so sure!

    I suppose it depends to which places you're comparing it with. Even so, it's not a description I would have used.

    Remember when the first trout was found in Thames, after many years?! Then stuffed and exibited? It is clean!

    p.s. Tdol has made a typo - ADVANCED, not ADAVNCED.
