    Prediction of future

    Hi guys,

    Please check. "A person wrote few things about future happenings sometime back in the past. So, so far all the things have come true that he had predicted for till date".

    Re: Prediction of future

    You have used 29 words. I've done it in 16.

    A few years ago, someone predicted some future events. So far, everything he predicted has happened.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Prediction of future

    I am concerned about my last sentence "That he had predicted for till date". Is it correct? If not what would be the correct form?

    Re: Prediction of future

    It is not correct for a number of reasons.

    'Till date' sounds like some antiquated legal/business jargon for 'up to now'.

    Re: Prediction of future

    But if I have to write anything in this context. Then with which word should "Till date" be replaced?

    ... so far.
    ... up until now.
