Student or Learner
could you please tell me which sentence IS grammatically correct?
a) Bob will be operated on soon.
b) You must go to the doctor to get a prescription.
c) The number of HIV-infected patients is still raising, although not as fast as before.
d) Mary has just been told that she is no longer eligible to state help.
I answered C, am I right or no?
My second question is which sentence IS logical?
a) The couple won't be able to afford holidays as they and their children live on one-parent benefit.
b) Some firms make excessive use of trainees and temps who are paid lower wages and more or less treated like casual labour.
c) I feel like I am living just on the breadline, I can hardly make ends meet and my income has now reached the upper limit.
d) All of the above
Here I answered A.
Thanks for your answer. I really don't see what's wrong with "is still raising"? Could you explain me please?
Same thing for the second one - why the A its not logical? The family live on one-parent benefit and they cannot afford holidays.
Oh and just in case - it's not my homework, it was part of my exam which I did 3 days ago. I have doubts with these two questions and I would like to calculate my note because I don't have the patience to wait 2 more weeks to have it.
Not a teacher
raise - cause to rise
rise - increase ascend
Relax! You'll have passed it
Ok, thanks a lot! What about the second one?
OK, I'll put you out of your misery. "One-parent benefit" or "single-parent benefit" as it's more commonly known is only available to households where there is only one parent living with the child/children.
The statement clearly says the "couple and their children..." so it is clearly not a one-parent family, hence they would not receive that benefit.
Oh ok I see. Well I thought that one-parent benefit its sort of financial help for the parent who doesn't work. Thanks a lot!
That is unemployment benefit.
