    Re: Must die

    That's fine. A bit brutal, but grammatical.

    "One of them must die in order for the other person to win".

    Would you accept a 'the'?

    Re: Must die

    No — you have to add 'the' before 'other'.

    Re: Must die

    Is my sentence correct?

    One of them must die in order to win for the other person.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: Must die

    "One of them must die for the other person to win".
    "In order" is omitted, does it make sense?
