Student or Learner
A friend of mine is taking an important exam in english this year (the most important school-leaving exam in our country). Last week they had a mock exam and he came and showed me his test and results. In one of the exercises they had to fill in the gap with an appropriate word derived from the word in brackets. The sentence was:
The leading manufacturers have engaged in a race against their ______ (compete) to launch new wearable devices into the market.
He wrote competition, but it is marked wrong. I am guessing they wanted competitors, but can't it really be competition?
