    About to go

    Dear All,

    Please look at the following sentence. So it should come as no surprise to most of us to hear that yet another part of everyday life is (2)........to go for ever.

    There are 4 choices - about, almost, ready, tending. The correct one is about.

    My question.

    Why the option with ready and tendiong is not correct one. Please explain to me the basis of selecting between such choices. Thank you.

    Re: About to go

    Someone once desribed the age we live in as that of a vanishing world, one in which the familiar is constantly disappearing for ever and technological change is often difficult to cope with. So it should come as no surprise to most of us to hear that yet another part of everyday life is (2)........to go for ever.

    In that context "about" is the correct answer.
