    It took Jin and Tom seven weeks / seven weeks for Jin and to climb up the mountain.

    1. It took Jin and Tom seven weeks to climb up the mountain.

    2. It took seven weeks for Jin and Tom to climb up the mountain.

    3. It took me seven weeks to climb up the mountain.

    4. It took seven weeks for me to climb up the mountain.


    My grammar book says sentence 1 is ungrammatical and I wonder if my book is correct.

    Thanks.

    You posted this within minutes of posting the same question in another forum. Please don't do that. You are wasting the time of people who respond in one forum when your question may have already received a response in the other.
