    Re: Pergamon ----- an ancient Greek city in modern-day Turkey

    If Pergamon "is", please show me where.
    I know where is was, but is it still a city?

    Re: Pergamon ----- an ancient Greek city in modern-day Turkey

    "modern-day Turkey" = i.e. the area is NOW part of Turkey, but wasn't part of Turkey during the other periods mentioned.

    Hope this helps

    PS It used to be part of Greece - as per your thread's title

    I would replace "modern-day" with "what is now".

    Re: Pergamon ----- an ancient Greek city in modern-day Turkey

    Wow. What an entirely horrible question. I was thinking that it IS a city that closely resembles what a city in ancient Greece would have looked like, and that it does exist in modern-day Turkey.

    I need to stop being astonished by how bad these questions are.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
