    mighty etc.

    Dear teachers,

    I have two questions to ask:

    No.1
    This is to students' advantage, because IN doing so they give the studetns time to pursue other activities.
    My question is: Can I replace 'in' with 'by'?

    No.2
    But constrained by a traditional conception of the federal government's proper role, he could take no ________ action.
    a. drastic b. mighty
    The key is 'a'. 'b' isn't correct because it can't modify 'action'. Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.
    Jiang
