    Re: the same word to be inserted

    = NOT A UE - REPRESENTING TEACHER =

    I'd suggest the following words to fill the gaps with:

    Set 1.: keep / preserve
    Set 2.: bare
    Set 3.: posing

    If I'm wrong there'll certainly be correcting posts.

    Re: the same word to be inserted

    Julia, welcome to the forum.

    You must know two things:
    1. We cannot help you with homework. If this is an assignment you are going to turn it, it's cheating to come to a forum for English teachers and ask for the answers. After you submit your homework, if your teacher makes a comment or a correction you do not understand, please ask us about it then.

    2. If this is self-study and not being submitted for a grade, we absolutely expect you to give your best effort to answer it yourself first. Posting the question and waiting for others to answer it won't help you learn.
    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.

    If you are not sure of the correctness of your response, then it is better no to respond. This forum is 'Ask a Teacher', and people who come to it expect that the responses posted will be accurate.

    Please also see Barb's post about homework.

    Re: the same word to be inserted

    Just registered with the forum but such a disappointment with the automated answer.
    Yes this is self-study and not being submitted for a grade. Different people learn different ways and i am learning when i know the correct answer. Unfortunately i do not have a answer key to the exercise. Trust me i would not log into this forum if i would not dig myself for w while.

    “we absolutely expect you” and “You must know two things” – very bossy teachers :)

    Ah. Well, I'm sorry you feel that making sure you know the expectations is "bossy."But you won't have to worry about another single response from me if that's your attitude. Good luck. Good bye.

    We are not bossy. We are strict. Many users come here and try to get us to give them the answers to homework questions so that they can get perfect scores on their tests. I am sure you can understand that that is completely unfair.

    There was no "automated answer". Even though there are certain points we have to make over and over again, we still tailor each answer to each individual post.

    It's good to know that you are studying on your own. However, I don't think you will find many teachers here who will agree that you only learn when you are given the correct answer. We will always ask you to give us your answer first.

    In addition to the above, remember that there are rules in written English. These are the most basic ones so please ensure that you follow them in all your forum posts:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: the same word to be inserted

    AsiaJulia, you appear to be looking for a forum where experienced teachers will give you free answers to homework questions.

    Good luck with that; this is not the one.
