I can't think of any at the moment. Let me think about it, OK? :DOriginally Posted by jack
The reason is that 'troubled maker' isn't a word. The word you're looking for is 'troublemaker', a compound noun. :wink:Originally Posted by jack
I am a troublemaker. (OK)
1. is incorrect; 2. is correct. Note that, 'would' is in the past tense, so 'find' shouldn't be in the past tense. :wink:Originally Posted by jack
First, we have two sentences joined by a comma--what's known as a comma splice. You'll need to replace the comma with a period or a semi-colon or a colon, like this,Originally Posted by jack
3a. I knew it. I would find you.
3b. I knew it; I would find you.
3c. I knew it: I would find you.
4a. I know it. I would find you.
4b. I know it; I would find you.
4c. I know it: I would find you.
Second, we could get rid of the punctuation by deleting "it" and adding "that", like this,
3. I knew that I would find you.
4. I know that I would find you.
Third, notice the relative clause "that". It tells us a clause is coming. The clause 'that I would find you' functions as the object of the verb 'knew/know'.
Fourth, there's a pattern:
Past that Past: knew that would
Present that Future: know that will
3. I knew that I would find you. (OK)
4. I know that I will find you. (OK)
Lastly, we can omit "that",
3. I knew I would find you. (OK)
4. I know I will find you. (OK)
All the best, :D
