If it.......... the children, the life would be so tedious
A. were for
B. weren't for
The answer page here is tore so I can't provide you with the correct answer. I think B is the right one here but somehow the meaning gets rather weird. I would have gone with A but it's just that I have never heard of a conditional sentence that begin with "if it were for". So which one is correct guys?
You're right- the correct answer is B. It means Without the children, life would be so tedious.
I would not put the definite article before life. I am not sure whether there should be one before children- if the person is speaking in general, then it's better without the, but if the person is speaking about their children, then it's fine.
