I wonder if any native speaker could help me with this.
As part of a final oral exam a colleague of mine handed in the following question (which was rejected right away as "not correct English")
"Discuss the main aspects of Cold War, referring to Cuba as your main example"
Where did she go wrong?
Would there be any more elegant way of phrasing
the "referring to Cuba as your main example" bit? (I really don't want to impose,but my colleague is quite upset since it was someone from the Board of Education that rejected her question and will be paying her a visit ASAP as well)
She has already used "main" - change the second one to "chief".
She could say "citing/discussing Cuba and its position on the international scene as an example".
