    Word formation

    Hey.
    What should I put in this gap?
    Computer technology is _____ for the future development of our world. (DISPENSE)
    Is "dispenser" the correct word?

    My second question is:
    Is this sentence correct?
    "They always open the windows *wide* in the evening.

    Re: Word formation

    "Dispenser" is not the right word. You are looking for a word (an adjective) that means the same as "vital" or "necessary".
    The second sentence is correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hint:
    Look it up in the Cambridge Dictionary website (click here).

    You'll see a list of related words down the bottom of that page, under "Browse."
    Clicking on one of those words will lead you to the word you're after.

    Well, that saved the OP from doing any of the work!
