Student or Learner
Thank you in advance for your reading.
I have come across some English problems that I would like to have a ask about them.
There are sentences that I find on a text.
"The girls she knew had not the same difficulty."
In this sentence, what does the "difficulty" mean? Also,what is the difference between "had not"and "didn't have"?
Besides, there is another sentence of "No place in the world is less like Britain".
I want to ask how to understand this sentence and what is the meaning of "less like"?
Thanks a million for your sincere help!
I'm grateful for all of you to clarify my doubts about these English problems.
Your explanations make me clear about the concepts.Thanks teachers!!
I'd like to further ask about the first sentence problem.
It's the excerpt from a story.
The paragraph describes in a third person narrative.
It talks about the school life that the main character was facing.
"Some of her classmates were preparing for the examinations.
They had no ideas about what was going to be tested,
but they somehow felt confident about it.
The girls she knew had not the same difficulty."
For the sentence"The girls she knew had not the same difficulty",
Does it mean that comparing with the main character,the classmates that the main character
knew didn't have the same sort of difficulty that faced by the main character,
such as the anxiety and uneasiness faced by the main character?
Thanks a lot for your assistance!
