    Benefit

    Hi,

    I want to use "benefit" as a verb. Please see my sentence as follows:

    "I would like to thank Professor Elder for his comments about the solvability of Problem A in (3) which benefit me in this paper".

    Would you correct my sentence if it is wrong? Thanks.

    Best wishes.

    Hi Tdol,

    Thank for your comment.

    You meant it should be "..which benefited me...", didn't you?
