    I am to have

    Is "I am to have.." or "She is to have.." correct?


    Thank You

    Re: I am to have

    Either is possible - in the right context.

    Could you please provide me some context when this is allowed? Thanks

    Re: I am to have

    The idea of the forum is that in the first place you provide a context — at least a full sentence — for us to consider.

    Note that an ellipsis consists of three dots — not two.

    Re: I am to have

    How about "They agreed that he is to have equal money."?

    not a teacher

    How about "They agreed that he is to have equal money."?

    This is fine.
    And, in reference to your original post, "They agreed that I am to have equal money" would also be correct.
