    Re: A Few Questions

    We ask people to tell us what they think are the answers and then will give our advice.

    So which would you choose for each of these?

    Re: A Few Questions

    You should break the job into the smallest possible parts.

    Allocate your time so that you not only meet the demands of your clients but also have room to develop your business.

    My apologies - I didn't realize that you had inserted your selection into the sentences.

    #1 1.To do this exercise ..... ideal job into the smallest possible parts.

    distribute = pass pieces of something to other people; shatter = reduce something to small pieces by vigorous action; batter = hit something repeatedly; which leaves "break". Normal usage would be "break down something into small pieces".

    The sentence seems to be missing something as it does not quite make sense.

    #2 Allocate your time so that you not only .... the demands of your clients but also have room to develop your business

    achieve = to succeed in finishing something; keep = retain; reach = get to; meet = fulfil or satisfy. Of these the one that meets the requirements of the sentence is "meet".

    #3 3.If your self-esteem is a direct ..... of your work situation,you'll feel inhumiliated when the going gets rough.

    A.issue = a problem that is being discussed; B.impact = a powerful effect that something has on a situation or person; C.outline = a description of the main facts about something; D.outcome = a result or effect of an action, situation

    "inhumiliated" is not a word - is it what was in your exercise?

    If your self-steem is a direct outcome of your work situation, you'll feel humiliated when the going gets rough.

    Re: A Few Questions

    Thanks a lot to both of you,RonBee and Anglika!I wanted to ask a few more questions.Here's a type of exercise which I dislike because I never seem to pont out the right answer.I should point out where the mistake is in the sentence.There may be no error in the sentences.
    1.The house(A) of Thomas Jefferson in Virginia is preserved much as it had been(B) when Jefferson lived(C) there.
    2.When the police found him,the pilot was hiding(A) hungry,cold and lonely in(B) the hills of a strange country for(C) 6 days.
    3.In the settling(A) of America it was imperative to build(B) quickly from materials at hand in order to give shelter to the new population,therefore,many new buildings had been made(C) of wood and have since deteriorated and vanished.
    4.There are many possible suspects yet(A) the police realizes(B) that only one person commited(C) the crime.

    I think that in the 1st sentence the misatke is in B.Maybe it's [I]has been[/.I] . In the 2nd sentence-in (C) but I'm not sure what the correction is.For the 3 one I have no clue.And in the 4th maybe it's in (C).I suppose it should be has commited .
