    Default Could someone correct this sentence?

    Hi,

    Problem with the next sentence:

    It is clear that in this last book lies all the answers for all the questions that have been build up throughout the series.

    Hope someone can make it into a better structure

    Thank you,

    true

    How about:

    It is clear that this last book holds the answers for all the questions built up throughout the series.

    I'd like a better word for holds tho, something better than "has".

    ;)

    "the answers to all the questions"
    "holds" is fine.

    You two are great!
    I was just so fixated on this sentence that I couldn't finish the text...


    Thank you!

    "provide the answers..."
    "questions that came up throughout..."

    You could use "contains" as an alternative.

    To "holds" and not to "to" obviously.
