    Kevin looked at the dry goods section

    Hello

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

    "Kevin looked at the dry goods section. There was no light there."

    Thanks.

    Re: Kevin looked at the dry goods section

    There are two sentences there. They are both grammatical but I don't see the connection between them.

    Dear Rover_KE:

    First of all, thanks for your answer.

    I make a mistake

    I wanted to write the following:

    "Kevin was walking in the section A of the supermarket. When he looked to the section B he realized that there was no light."

    Thanks.

    Re: Kevin looked at the dry goods section

    It's still rather unnatural. Supermarkets usually have a high ceiling with multiple lights. Even if the light directly above section B was broken, there would be enough light from the other lights to see by.

    However, let's leave the logistics aside.

    Kevin was in the bread aisle of the supermarket. When he went into the meat aisle, he noticed it was rather dark!

    In supermarkets in the UK, you can't see from one section into another because the shelves are too high.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
