    Cool omission of "of"

    Hello!


    Which is the right expression? :

    -a couple of days or a couple days?

    -She's not sure of what she wants or she's not sure what she wants.

    Can we ever use "of" after "sure"?

    Thanks a lot

    Not a teacher.

    Any of those options are fine. They mean the same thing.

    All of your sentences are fine. You can also use the preposition "about" after "sure."
