    You will notice that Tdol used "correct", not "true", in his response. We use "true/false" for facts. We use "correct/right/incorrect/wrong" for things like whether something is grammatical.

    The elephant is the smallest animal in the world.
    The sentence above is grammatically correct but it is not true.

    Also, note that I have changed your thread title. Titles should include some or all of the words or phrases you are querying.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
