Student or Learner
I have a problem with word formation, - My dad used to be really fit and was on his college ____________ team. ATHLETE
(btw, wouldn't be the preposition In better?)
The correct answer should be athletics, but why not athletic? Is there any difference?
In another exercise I have a sentence : They always paly in a very athletic way. --- Why not athletics? both words are used as adjectives!
Thank you very much for advice!!!
