    Default Grammar

    Dear teachers,

    Please read the following sentence and the choices:

    Judging by the amount of work that may be involved, I think it will take use at least______ to finish it.

    a. one and half month's time b. a month a half's time
    a month and a half of time d. a month and a half time

    I think 'a' is closest to the key but it should be ' one and half months' time'. Is that right?

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    I would say 'a month and a half' or 'one and a half months' I see no need for 'time'here.
