I saw that other people seemed to be getting more enjoyment out of school than I was.
My question is: Can I also use "at" and "from" apart from "out of"? In this sentence it has to be "out of".
Even a mighty express train can be ___b______ by signals.
a. slowed up/down b. held up
Please explain whether the following sentences are correct:
1. The reason that I didn't go to the party was that I got a bad cold.
2. The reason that I didn't go to the party was because I got a bad cold.
3. The reason why I didn't go to the party was that I got a bad cold. correct - the reason why - was...
I can say "to fail in a subject". But I can't say "to fail in doing something"? Is that right? I conclude so because in the following sentence:
Almost everone fails ________his deriver's test on the first try.
a. in passing b. to pass
The key is "b". Is the key correct? Yes. To fail to do sth.
___________ you are blind, you will not miss the astonishing changes taking place in Shanghai.
a. Although b. Unless
The key is "b". No problem. But I think "a" is also possible in that people are comforting the blind person and make sure he will not miss the astonishing changes despite the fact that he is blind. Is that right?
Well, the point is to rather emphasize the visual aspect of the changes (the connection to the ability or inability to see), so only b is correct for this sentence. However, I understand your explanation for "although".
