    adverb...

    Hi,

    What's the answer to the below sentence?

    I lost the book. I bought it a month before that.
    -> I lost the book I had bought it a month(ago/before)?
    I think the answer is 'before'. But is 'ago' possible?

    Thank you...

    I lost the book. I bought it a month ago.

    I lost the book. I bought it a month before that. What does 'that' refer to in the sentence??

    -> I lost the book. I had bought it a month before. -Before what?

    That means 'the time' I lost the book.
    Before the time I lost the book.
