    Transformation of sentence

    She tried very hard but she still failed her driving test.

    I have transform the sentence as follows and wonder whether 'still' is needed.

    No matter how hard she tried, she still failed the driving test.

    Thanks.

    Re: Transformation of sentence

    Yes, if you are sticking as closely as you can to the meaning of the original.

    Is there a transformation bug in the air? We seem to be having a spate of transformation questions at the moment (not just from you, Tan Elaine).

    Thanks, 5jj.

    Maybe there is a bug, but I believe I am the one asking the most questions on transformation.
