Student or Learner
Please see the below two questions.
The answer is (D) but I am confusing with (B) and (C). Can you explain
why (B) (C) cannot be an answer?
The hiring committee reported that the
candidate’s ------- experience with publishing
was the reason they denied him the position.
(A) least of all
(B) so little
(C) hardly any
(D) lack of
I can't find out the difference between whereas and although.
The answer is "although". What is the difference between them?
Thank you in advance.
------- construction of the ski resort is lagging
a full month behind schedule, investors are
confident it will be completed before the first
The pattern is as follows:
(B) so little <adverb + adjective>
(C) hardly any <adverb + adjective>
(D) lack of <noun + preposition>
All of the phrases above are adjectival, and all of them express a negative meaning, but they differ in one respect: their internal structure. (D) 'lack of' is introduced by a noun ('lack'). The other two choices, (B) and (C), are introduced by an adverb ('so' and 'hardly').
Verb + 'so little / hardly any'
- He has so little experience.
- He has hardly any experience.
- There is so little experience here.
- There is hardly any experience here.
Possessive + 'so little / hardly any'
- his so little experience
- his hardly any experience
- the candidate's so little experience
- the candidate's hardy any experience
Thank you guys^^
