    Re: Is this sentences correct

    Yes, but the original question should be "Are these sentences correct?"

    Re: Is this sentences correct



    Why do we have two prepositions? Does that mean that a punctuation mark after the first with has been omitted? Does the first sentence end after the word with that is being typed in bold?


    Thank you,

    Re: Is this sentences correct

    There should not be two "with"s in the original sentence. I think MartinEnglish did the same thing I did on first reading, and only noticed one "with". I only realised there were two when I saw your question in post #3.

    One "with" would be correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you,

    Nice catch. I missed that perhaps because the first "with" is in bold lettering.
