Student or Learner
I always keep getting confused about the usage of "all of". I felt like going with v1 here, but a quick google search indicated that "all of " can only be used before pronouns.
V1. I created pitch books for all of the shortlisted opportunities
V2. I created pitch books for all shortlisted opportunities
Can you please help me with another query regarding the usage of 'the'. Which of the following sentences sounds better?
1) I created pitch books for all shortlisted opportunities
2) I created pitch books for all the shortlisted opportunities
They still mean the same in this context, because the shortlisted opportunities have been identified. In another context, they would be different.
1. "I provided food for all the children."
2. "I provided food for all children."
Sentence 2 is impossible, unless you're Bill Gates. But you can provide food for "all the children" if it's known which subset of children you mean.
Thanks Raymott! :)
I advise you to end all sentences with a punctuation mark. No sentence is correct without one.V1. I created pitch books for all of the shortlisted opportunities.
V2. I created pitch books for all shortlisted opportunities.
