What does "think harder" mean in the following context?
The sinking of the Titanic made people think harder about the safety of passengers on ships.
NOT A TEACHER.
This sentence is as important to me as to you. I want to know what it means too. Perhaps it means to be more careful on journeys on ships. Doesn't it?
Let's see what others' opinions.
Do you mean harder mean more serious?
So I can also say "The sinking of the Titanic made people think more serious about the safety of passengers on ships".

The answer was given in the second post in this thread.
(The grammar is "more seriously" not "more serious."
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.
