    Different from or than

    Look at this Cloze test. I'm sure about all the answers except No.2. I think both different from and different than are common. What do you think?


    The passage of heat from one place to another by the movement of liquid or gas is called convection, and it takes place when the (1) --------- of one part of liquid or gas is different (2) -------- that of another part. When a liquid is heated it expands (3) ---------- so that the hot liquid is lighter than the (4) ------- colder liquid and therefore rises. In an electric kettle the wavy currents for hot water can be seen (5) --------- from the element when the electricity has just been switched on. A radiator or hot water tank is always hotter at the top than at the bottom for this reason.



    1- 1) weight 2) formation 3) sort 4) temperature
    2- 1) from 2) than 3) of 4) with
    3- 1) comfortably 2) slightly 3) possibly 4) commonly


    4- 1) missing 2) organizing 3) surrounding 4) growing
    5- 1) rising 2) crossing 3) transferring 4) removing


    My answers:
    1. 4
    2. 1 ( and 4)
    3. 2
    4. 3
    5. 1

    Re: Different from or than

    Based on the thread title, I think you meant 1 or 2 for #2. Is that right?
