    worthy of

    ''She is not worthy of that she became first in the competition.'' (I mean; in the competition, she does not deserve being first.)

    Is it okay? if not, how can I correct it.


    Thanks,

    What about this sentence, is it wrong?

    I am not a teacher.

    You can't use 'worthy' like this.

    She is not a worthy winner.

    Re: worthy of

    She was not worthy of her first place.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: worthy of

    Is it correct to say 'she is not worthy of being the winner'?
