    Smile I have a question :D

    Hello teacher.

    I hope all is well with you.

    I read an article and have a question.

    Please look at this sentence.

    Arguably Arsenalís most perturbing signing of the summer was that of South Korean striker Park Chu-Young.

    I think it is OK when I write the sentence above like this:
    Arguably Arsenalís most perturbing signing of the summer was South Korean striker Park Chu-Young.

    Does "that of" mean "signing of" ?

    I would really appriciate it if you answer my question. ^^

    Re: I have a question :D

    Yes, 'that of' is 'the signing of'.

    Please give your threads a more helpful title. 'that of?' would have been good for this one.

    ps. I have just seen your edited version. The second one is fine.

    Re: I have a question :D

    Thank you so much!

    Next time, I will definitely give a more detailed title :D

    Actually, at first, I want to write the second sentence using stike-out line(?), not underline. Maybe middle-line?????
    I don't know "strike-out line" is correct but I think you can get what I mean.
    Anyway this site seems not to support the function and eventually the two sentence had been shown identically.


    BTW thank you for your answering.
    Many teachers on this site including you always help me substantially.

    P.S
    I'd really appriciate If you have some free time and correct this posting, seeming awkward.
    Have a nice day~

    I don't know whether "strike-out line" is correct but I think you can get what I mean.

    I don't know if it's correct either, but it works.
    The last icon in the toolbar at the top of your message is
    ABC. Just highlight the text you want to strike out, and click on that icon.

    BTW thank you for your answering.
    Thank you for answering/responding or Thank you for your answer/response.
