I have two questions to ask:
Millions sleepwalk their way ____ their lives as if nothing had changed since the 1930'.
a. through b. during
The key is 'a', No problem. Could you please explain why 'b' isn't correct? Does it mean 'during' as it refers to a period of time between the beginning and end? For example, during March and April and there are Jan. and Dec. while 'through' should mean ' from Jan. to Dec.'? It certainly has that meaning. In the context of the example, it is the concept of people living from year a through the intervening years to year x, rather than simply being within that period, which is what "during" would express.
A ________journey on the Mystery Express offers the opportunity to solve a challenging murder mystery right the on the train.
a. representative b. typical
The key is 'b'. But 'a' also means typical. Could you please kindly explain why 'a' isn't correct?
The meaning of representative is • adjective 1 typical of a class or group. It would not be correct in this context as the "journey on the Mystery Express" is neither a class nor a group.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
