    THE EXCLAMATION, The meaning of WELL-OFF and ONE OF THEM

    1.- E.X. What a cake!
    I am trying to say 'I´m surprised ´cause
    the cake they bought it was huge´

    Is it right? Should I omit the indefinite article?

    2.- E.X. The streets are full of people and you are ONE OF THEM

    I don´t know if that 'one of them' is used correctly here.

    I mean 'You are one of those people'.

    3.- I´ve been looking up the term 'well-off' in the dictionary,
    but I still hesitate. Can I use it with the meaning of
    ´very rich´ in this sentence?

    E.X. He is famous and well-off now.


    Thanks a million!

    Have a nice day!

    Hello J.

    "Yes" to the first two questions; for the third, it might be better if you said "very well-off".

    All the best,
    MrP
