Student or Learner
Could you, please, tell me which of the following is correct:
1. a. "copyright material"
b. "copyrighted material" (I found both)
2. a. two birds ON a tree
b. two birds IN a tree
3. Are "appropriate" and "suitable" synonyms in:
"Put a tick in the appropriate / suitable box."
4. Is this one ok?
He stood nearest TO the door.
I once read that "nearest" requires "to", whereas in:
He got too near the sun.
"near" doesn't need one.
A big thank you,
In Oxford Collocations Dictionary I read:
1. bird in a tree
fruit on a tree
Could you please explain the difference, if any?
2. Fill in the blanks with the suitable / appropriate form of the verbs
are suitable and appropriate both ok?
Birds perch in trees; fruit grows on trees.
Fill in the blanks with the appropriate form of the verbs
