    Actually, not all of them are correct, and I can't tell you which, sorry, because we do not do or help with homework related assignments.

    Members, please be reminded.

    Re: Forming Words In The Space Provided

    Why can't you say "the weather is pleasant"?

    I can anticipate something like "being pleasant is averb, not an adjective" but then, I could say on the same grounds that "pleasing" is as well, we understand it as an adjective because it doesn't have an object (the weather is pleasing her), just like we understand "the weather is pleasant " in the same way, because it has no object. I hope no teacher is seriously making this distinction.

    A:The weather is nice.
    B:It's not nice to me.
    A:Oh, that's not what I mean!

    The poster nunudada is asking us to correct a take home exam. Please, read the forum rules. We do not help with, correct or do homework related assignments, especially tests and exams.

    If you would like to discuss the difference between pleasant and pleasing, please start a new thread.
