For example, animals compete over water supplies, food, mates, and other biological resources. Humans compete for water, food, and mates, though when these needs are met deep rivalries often arise over the pursuit of wealth, prestige, and fame.
I found the above sentences from wikipedia.
When I told other plants can't compete with a tree over the sunlight, sombody said compete for sunlight.
The tree grows so fast and gets too tall that it provides dense shade so that other plants can't
it over the sun light for sunlight.
I'm confused. Could you please clear up my confusion.
Thank you so much.
You mean If I say animals compete with each other over nest , food, and other resources , my sentence is wrong!
When we use the preposition ''for'' and ''over'' whit the verb ''compete''.
Thank you so much. Learning English seems easy, but in my view, it is really tough to master it.
