    Smile Which one of these is true?

    Which one is true?
    'Her father approved of her marrying that man' or 'Her father approved of her to marry that man'?
    'They use veils over their faces' or They use veils by their faces'?

    and also, is this sentence correct?
    'i will stick to resolution to get me improved'

    Thank you

    "They wear veils over their faces."
    and also, is this sentence correct?
    'i will stick to resolution to get me improved' No, it's not even close to being correct. There are at least three errors.

    Thank you
    To tell whether a sentence is true, one needs to know whether the sentence expresses a true proposition.
    So, we would need to know whether her father did, in fact, approve of her marrying that man. If he did, the sentence is true. That has no bearing on whether it's grammatically correct.

    Re: Which one of these is true?

    For your third sentence, is it possible you meant "I will stick to my resolution to improve myself?"
