Student or Learner
This is the first time I have visited this website, I feel it interesting. And I have a question, please help me ^^
Question: The difference between HARDLY and SELDOM.
And please answer my exercise:
Choose the best answer:
Although his sales results are excellent, Lincoln ....... attends meetings. He's absent from such activities.
A. often B. Seldom C. Hardly D. Sometimes
Thanks so much !
Hardly: used to emphasize a minimal amount or soften the negative;
The meeting had hardly started when he left. (almost not)
Seldom: Used to express a minimal frequency (not often, infrequently)
Meetings are the right forum for interaction, but he seldom attends meetings.(Almost never)
So you can now choose the best one to fill the blank.
