Student or Learner
I want to know if I should use 'us' or 'our' in the sentence 'what advice will you give us/our graduate students?'. Note that the person who asks the question is a graudate student himself.
Did you mean "What advice would you give us?" or "What advice would you give us graduate students?" If those were the choices, then the first is absolutely fine. The second is not.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
If the context is a representative (of the graduate students) talking to someone who's supposed to give the advice, he could say either "What advice would you give us?" or "What advice would you give us?" In the second sentence it has to be made clear, by an earlier reference perhaps, or based on context, that "us" refers to "graduate students."
