I see the first sentence correct. How about the second one? Pls.
I hope you telling me wether the second one is correct or wrong, Pls.
No, they were not a attractive lot.- Gone with the wind
Is it wrong? Pls.
(1) Should that sentence say "an"?
No, they were not AN attractive lot.
(2) in this case, "lot" means something like a group.
(a) In other words, they were not an attractive group.
(2) I have never read "Gone with the Wind." Maybe another poster
can tell you what that speaker meant.
(a) One definition of "attractive" is "good-looking."
***not a teacher***
Attractive can also mean "sexy", but I believe the latter is less nice.
