Both are good, but the first is more likely.Originally Posted by Anonymous
Both are correct.2. _______ of the two books holds the opinion that the danger of nuclear war is increasing.
a. Either b. Neither
The key is b. I think a is also correct.
No, only "before" fits there.3. A man escaped from prison last night. It was a long time_________ the guards discovered what had happened.
a. before b. since
'a ' is certainly correct. Does 'b' make sense if I want to mean ' A man escaped from prison last night and guards discovered it long time ago'?
No, because it is a that clause. If you want to use it you have to make it a compound sentence, thus:Another sentence is ' The construction of these treasures was a loss for mankind that no amount of money could make up for'.
I think 'make up for' should be followed by 'it'. In other words the sentence misses the word 'it' after the phrase 'make up for' . Am I right?
- The destruction of those treasures was a loss for mankind, and no amount of money can make up for it.
