    Default come, arise, happen, occur

    Please proof read the following 1-8 and give some ideas if you like.

    1. We may add rules to address questions and issues as they come.

    2. We may add rules to address questions and issues as they arise.

    3. We may add rules to address questions and issues as they occur.

    4. We may add rules to address questions and issues as they happen.

    5. We may add rules to address problems and issues as they come.

    6. We may add rules to address problems and issues as they arise.

    7. We may add rules to address problems and issues as they occur.

    8. We may add rules to address problems and issues as they happen.

    9. Any better suggestion?


    Thanks


    Note: they = questions/problems and issues

    Default Re: come, arise, happen, occur

    I would rephrase this as "We may add rules in order to address...."

    With reference to your sentences, 2/3/4/6/7/8 all seem to me acceptable.

    Whether you use questions or problems will be governed by the context in which the sentence is to be used.

    Hi Ang,

    I wonder why 'come' doesn't work?

    Thanks

    I am afraid it is just one of those things. We do not have problems or questions or issues come.
