    marked a concerted effort and it was a way for a group of technical freaks to reach

    Hello again!

    The use of modern technology marked a concerted effort to attract huge numbers of people interested in cars. Combining new technology with interesting material, it was a way for a group of technical freaks to reach the remaining people.

    I took the liberty of asking you questions about phrases from two separate sentences.

    1. Does "marked" in the first sentence mean "indicated" or "represented" or "meant"? It is hard for me to guess but I think the latter one applies.

    2. Does "it was a way for a group of technical freaks to reach" mean "(in) this way a group of technical freaks managed to reach ....?

    I may be wrong, of course.

    Thank you.

    1. For me, "represented" is the closest.

    2. No, your phrase is too positive. All it says is that this a possible way for the group to reach the remaining people.

    Did you write the phrase which starts "The use of modern technology ..."?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
