1. ## Resulted

I have a sentence:
I will transform it with the word given Resulted
--> Mary's mistakes was resulted in by the refusal to listen to advice

Is the sentence above right or not?

* It's not an assignment, though.

It's not good like that. The mistakes she makes are the result of her refusal to listen. So the scentence should be:

Mary's refusal to listen to advice has resulted in mistakes.

Or; Mary's mistakes were the result of her refusal to listen to advice.

3. ## Re: Resulted

I've expected some help from a trinity, they gave me the answer like that:
Mary’s mistake resulted from her refusal to listen to advice.
Are they wrong?

But Miner, the word given is Resulted , not result

4. ## Re: Resulted

You wrote:

I corrected into:
Mary's refusal to listen to advice has resulted in mistakes.

And gave the explanation:
The mistakes she makes are the result of her refusal to listen.

Mary’s mistake resulted from her refusal to listen to advice.

5. ## Re: Resulted

Nah, I just want to ask:
From the sentence: Mary made mistakes because she refused to listen to advice
You must write it in this from:
Mary's mistakes ____________ the refusal to listen to advice

If I write:

Mary's mistakes was resulted in by the refusal to listen to advice
Is it right or not?

And if it isn't, is the trinity right?

If the trinity right, please explain my why, b/c I only learn that : Resulted goes with "in", not "from"

Who told you that?

Do a Google search with "resulted from" and you'll see.

Is it right or not? I told you it is wrong (please read my post)

Always welcome

Thanks a lot Miner
I remember when I used "resulted from", my teacher said: " No, it must be resulted in! you were wrong!"

Hehe,... So you see, teachers are only members of the human kind.

- The accident resulted from an accumulation of wrong decisions and mechanical failure.

But if you turn the scentence around like this, you have to use "resulted in"

An accumulation of wrong decisions and mechanical failure resulted in an accident.
