Hi native English speakers!
I have a few questions that I'm sure someone out there can help me with.
1. The view from the prison to/towards the Golden Gate Bridge in/to the west and San Fransisco in/to the south is unique.
2. The prison was shut down by (the) Attorney General Robert ....(with or without the)
3. For many years the cable car has been the big/biggest tourist attraction.
4. In 1960 the city experienced a violent earthquake, which immediately started an awful fire.(comma or not)
This is what I think sounds the best, but are the other options still acceptable English?
1. towards+to the east
2. both with ot without article sounds ok
3. both are ok
4. with comma, since you're adding additional information
I'm looking forward to some answers from native speakers.
2. Use "the" without the Attorney General's name and exclude it with his name.
3. Either is OK depending on whether the speaker/writer means general popularity ("big") or some evidence indicates tourists consider it the most popular ("biggest").
4. I am a "comma conservative".
So both options "the view of/towards.." are possible?
I think "to the west-to the south" sound better, but I'm not a native speaker. What do you think?
So there shouldn't be a comma in the last sentence?
I've checked a few English-English dictionaries, but I don't find any examples where "towards" is used after "view", but it may still be acceptable, or?
Thanks for your answer.
It makes sense what you're saying.
How about my comma?
Do you think "in" the west/south is acceptable in my sentence, because I think "to" sounds a lot better?
