    Question ???

    The expert tells me the company is not reaching its goals and that things ___.

    Possible answers:
    1. have now taken a turn for the worse
    2. have now turned a milestone
    3. have now turned upsidedown
    4. have now been turning bad

    My more likely answer would be number 4, but I am not sure. Any native speaker?

    Re: Question ???

    I'd choose No. 1. The company has gone from bad to worse.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Question ???

    That's not one of the options, Ted, though #1 is the correct answer. However, it should end with a full stop.
