# Thread: House prices have not fallen this year.

1. ## House prices have not fallen this year.

Hi.
Suppose that these three sentences are false and I'm going to correct them. Are my sentences correct?

sentence 1: House prices have fallen dramatically this year.
[my sentence:] house prices have not fallen this year. but they have grown this year.

sentence 2: The price of petrol has risen in the last three months.
[my sentence:] the price of petrol has not risen in the last three months, but it has remained stable.

sentence 2: Food prices have remained stable in recent months.
[my sentence:] Food prices have not remained stable, but it has grown slightly.

2. ## Re: gramatically correct?

I would say "House prices have risen dramatically this year."

sentence 2: The price of petrol has risen in the last three months.
[my sentence:] the price of petrol has not risen in the last three months, but it has remained stable.
I'd use "The price of petrol has remained the same/risen in the last three months."

sentence 2: Food prices have remained stable in recent months.
[my sentence:] Food prices have not remained stable, but it has grown slightly.
I' say "Food prices have risen/fallen in recent months." Note that your "it" should have been "they" because it refers to "prices".
See above.
