    Regard or nominate

    Hi!
    - He has now been formally ___________ as a presidential candidate.
    a- regarded
    b- nominated
    The key is A, but I am wondering why B is incorrect, please.

    Re: Regard or nominate

    A is extremely unnatural. I don't know anything about the American presidential voting system but I would think that "formally nominated" would be much more likely.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes, one would be formally nominated at the party convention.
