    resolving problems

    Hi, I was reading a thread that got closed, but I think there is a mistake.

    See post #41 https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/t...=1#post1281179

    Piscean answers no to:
    And you told me that the whole clause refers back to B's statement "yes, they are", correct?
    They talk about the sentence:
    The other answer would be "Yes, they are." This would contradict A's statement, meaning that Bill and George are the same person.
    The whole clause that they speak about is: This would contradict A's statement

    And that sentence refers back to the answer "yes they are"? See post #24


    Teachers?

    It was closed for the same reason that this one will be soon, I suspect. Enough is enough.

    Re: resolving problems

    But what is so hard to respond to this question? You see there is a direct question where the problem is well described.You can be sure no one would ask that good questions if it were not important. If you only solve this small question I promise there will be no further questions.

    It has been thoroughly answered in the thread in the previous link and in several others.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I can't promise that there will be no further questions, but I can promise that any account you make will be shut down every single time you rear up to troll us. Every account you make takes time as you have to make a new email account and then join the forum, while banning you is a single click.
