Interested in Language
I've got two sentences below that sound somewhat odd when I read them to myself. Is there anyone who could kindly have a look at them?
1. In order to conform to the usual practice in (or of?) the public examination, there should be a mixture of equal number of boys and girls in each group.
2. Question papers were distributed at random to the candidates so that they were not able to guess easily which set of paper they would be tested on. (or is it better if I change it to sth like 'in case they could guess easily at the set of paper that would be used in the test'?)
