3. that seen
4. to be seen
What's wrong with no.4?
Dear 5jj, thanks for your answer. The answer key has chosen No.2 as a correct one. So I was in a quandary. What's wrong with No.2
"Nowhere to be found" is the expression I would expect to see.
Nowhere to be seen/found both work for me.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
How about this one?
The intruder was seen nowhere.
I wonder if the statement "I see him nowhere." with the intended meaning as below is natural or not. It is the form that my teacher usually uses.
"I see him nowhere." with the meaning "I don't see him anywhere."
"I see him nowhere" is not very natural. I'd say "I can't see him anywhere".
