    Re: Teachers which one is corect that, where? and why?

    I think you have now posted three very similar questions. Someone gave you the answer to the first one. Why don't you look at that one and see if you can find any kind of pattern or similarity between it and your other two questions?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    This is My problem. I can not find the rule about this kind of questions

    According to the answer I got to the first one. I thinks the answer might be where. But Mr B said both are not ok.

    He did not say that neither one is okay. He said that "both" are not okay. That is, A & B are not both right.

    If A is wearing yellow and B is wearing red, they are not both in red. That is not the same as saying neither is in red.
    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.

    You said that both were OK, I said no, both are not OK. I'm sorry if I didn't make it clear that I meant only one was OK. "where" is correct.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***

    Earth is the only planet where life is known to exist.

    Earth is the only planet that can sustain life.
