    Re: choose the correct words

    Some have more than one correct choice. You can tackle or attack. You can say something was held or it was believed.
    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.

    For 58 "with" is possible but so is "among". "assessed" is not one of the choices for 60.

    I do not understand your last post''For 58 "with" is possible but so is "among"''. For 60 i think since should be the right answer.

    I mean that either of those words would fit the text. For 60, "but" is correct.
