    FACE

    1 I face a problem.
    2. I am in the face of a problem.
    3. I am faced with a problem.

    Are they the same?


    I am faced with a problem.
    Is it a verb or adj?


    I am in the face of a problem.
    =I am in face of a problem. ?




    THANKS

    I am faced with a problem.
    Is it a verb or adj? It's a verb.


    I am in the face of a problem.
    =I am in face of a problem. ? Both of these are meaningless.




    THANKS
    1. and 3. mean the same. 2. doesn't mean anything.
