    Re: rather?

    Nothing to worry about, but look at this:
    pls explain when do i have to use rather.
    Please explain when I have to use rather.
    You'll notice that in my version, I don't use the auxiliary verb- this is because you're not asking a question directly. However, it didn't make it difficult to understand.

    Re: rather?

    It depends on the tone of voice. If the word is not stressed, then she's reasonably pretty. If it's stressed it could mean that she's very pretty.
