- Elvin is not sure if Tommy, Sam or Jason is going to teach him algebra this evening.
I would use "is" instead of "are" since the last subject, "Jason" is singular. Is this correct?
If this is correct, then should the last subject be plural, I should use "are"?
Please help me to understand why the use of "would" in the sentence is incorrect?
I should use "is" instead of "are" since the last subject......
1) how do i strike out words in this page? I couldn't locate the "strike-out" icon, only the "bold", italics and underline.
2) May I know how do you screen shot segments of my query?
Thank you for teaching me!
If it's not incorrect, then why was it crossed out by teechar in post#2 above?
In my opinion teechar was wrong to do that, Matthew.
If you were suggesting that you would write it in the way suggested (it would be your preferred way of saying it), then you were quite right to use "would". You used it correctly in a statement. Had you been asking a question, then "Should I use ...?" would have been correct.
To find the "strikethrough" function, click on the "Go Advanced" button to the bottom right of the reply box while you are posting a reply. You will see a new range of function buttons. The one which looks like
ABCis the one you need. Highlight the word you want to strike through, then hit that button.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
