Student or Learner
Literature preserve record of the thoughts, dreams and deeds of the people of a given culture & society. In spite of a perhaps vast time and distance from our own place in those two dimensions, literature helps us to know that human nature is stacked in a regularity that is comforting. From it we learn the boundaries of what others have been able to endure.
What does the word it refer to?
a.regularity b. human c. literature d. nature
I have been told that the best choice is "c". The problem is this: I couldn’t have answered this question if I had not told.
Please a rule is needed!
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
I have split it into a new thread with an appropriate title.
Please do not post new questions onto old threads, even your own old threads. Start new ones for new issues.
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.
...and please read the Posting Guidelines—especially this:
Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed. (Avoid phrases like "HELP!", "Urgent!", "translation please", "how do I say this", "I'm new" and similar expressions.
I can usually work out what students mean, but in this case, I'm stumped.
