    Exercise

    Dear Teachers,

    1. He can do every difficult math and English exercises.
    - Is this right to say? and can I say "solve" instead of "do"?

    Thanks a million!

    Re: Exercise

    The word solve is more appropriate for a math exercise than an English exercise. I would stay with do.

    Also: "He can do every difficult math and English exercises." should be: "He can do every difficult math and English exercise." Every is singular.

    I think you mean to say:
    He can do very difficult math and English exercises.
