    Smile Mobile Causes more benefit than harm.

    Hello everyone,

    I want better sentence than this one.

    Mobile phones cause more benefit than harm to our society.

    Re: Mobile Causes more benefit than harm.

    Are you talking about mobile phones?

    Yes. And sorry about the typo. Anyway, what do you think of this sentence?

    Re: Mobile Causes more benefit than harm.

    Now you have changed it to "mobile phones", you need to look at your verb agreement.

    We don't "cause benefit". Something simply "benefits" something else. Although we can "cause harm", we can also simply "harm". Bearing that in mind, try your sentence again.

    Re: Mobile Causes more benefit than harm.

    Thanks a lot. What about saying 'Mobile phones harm our society, not benefit.' ?

    Re: Mobile Causes more benefit than harm.

    That doesn't work, either. Now you are saying that mobile phones are of no benefit to our society. Mine is very useful indeed.

    Re: Mobile Causes more benefit than harm.

    I can't actually say it well. :( Any recommendation?

    Mobile phones benefit our society more than they harm it.
