    Re: having is used

    Dear Raamraam,

    More than once, Bhaisahab has taken the trouble to correct your English and show you how to write questions properly.
    As a courtesy to him, may I suggest that you do this in this post?
    It is just as easy to write a question correctly when you have the example in front of you than it is to write your questions improperly.

    John

    Re: having is used

    how the term "having" is used How do you use the term "having"?

    What is the differences difference among between the following sentences?

    "...other than using small letters instead of capital. i don't think that it is a issue at all in on the internet."

    Really? Not an issue?
    Take a look at ANY page on Wikipedia and tell me if each and every sentence does not begin with a capital letter? Take at look at any well-written website from any of the Fortune 500 companies and show me one sentence that does not begin with a capital letter.

    Sloppy writing leads to sloppy thinking, which leads to sloppy work. And, sloppy work leads to downfall.

    If you want help with your sentences, try to do them first and we will correct them if you make mistakes.

    John

    Re: having is used

    Raamraam - you have not angered me.

    My whole point is to HELP you.
    If no one tells you these sorts of things, how will you learn?

    I have a question for you:
    Let's say that I am a boss and I have a job for a qualified person and the salary is
    85,000 Euros (that's right - eighty-five thousand)a year.
    Now, two equally qualified candidates have applied for the job. Between the two, there is only one difference. The difference is that one candidate knows how to write and speak English nearly perfectly and the other can't. Both could do the job, but I need a reason to choose one over the other. Which candidate do you think will get the job?

    For the difference between "between and among" look here:
    GMAT Grammar: Among vs Between

    Concerning these sentences:

    1)having gotten the admission he went to college.

    2)after getting admission he went to college.

    3)since he got admission he went to college.

    No, I will not give you the answers. You try first.

    Re: having is used

    Sir, thank you so much for helping me to correct my english. hereafter before posting a question i will try it myself(here myself or by myself?).

    I think for for the query regarding "difference between" . you are referring me to the following rule.

    7) Generally between is used after difference.
    e.g:
    What's the difference between a Democrat and a Republican?
    There are enormous differences between developing countries in burden of disease , financial resources, educational attainment, and health systems

    Then my question is...

    If there are three students(may be one is tall,one is fair&one is fat) if we want to ask what is the difference(it there is more than one difference can't we use plural form) between them
    Would the question be

    What is the(should we use definite article here because we don't know whether a difference arises at all) difference between sam,peter and louis?


    And for the question with respect t the term" having" I have tried a lot but could find nothing.


    Thank you

    Re: having is used

    While I agree with everything JohnParis has written, I can't bear this any longer:

    Having been admitted, ...
    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.
