    I need more opinions..^^

    Hi, guys! The answer is (A) but (D) cannot be an answer?
    If not, why it can't be? Plz help. I'd like to hear experts' opinions. ^^
    Oh, one more... 800 and 1000 mean the score or the number of people?
    Thank you.

    A result of 800 out of 1000 in the aptitude test
    is just ------- the average score achieved by
    our graduate recruits.

    (A) below
    (B) among
    (C) toward
    (D) on

    800 and 1000 are the scores in the aptitude test mentioned.

    Below is correct. Here it is used with just. On does not collocate with average score ie someone's score is either above or below the average score. It can also be the same as the average score but it would not be just on the average score.

    On can be used with average in this way :

    On average, I go to the cinema 3 times a month.

    I hope this helps.

    Re: I need more opinions..^^

    This appears to be the third time you have asked this question. Please don't repeat questions. People who are interested in reading the answers, and those giving the answers, want the chance to be able to read everything that has been written on the subject.

    Multiple threads can lead to confusion.

    Agreed- it would say 800 out of 1,000 is the average score...


    Also, juliana0403, please don't post multiple threads- they will be deleted as they clag the forum up, make things difficult to follow and can be disruptive.

    If you need more answers just send a new post in your old thread, just like:"I need more suggestions", "Any other suggestions?". when you send a new post your thread goes to the top of the list and attracts attention.

    And keep in mind that the overwhelmingly likely reason for receiving only one reply to a question is that the answer is right, and nobody can be bothered posting just to agree. On the other hand, it's not common for wrong answers not to be challenged.
