    Question Only with ... could we

    Could you tell me if this sentence gramma is correct?
    "Only with concerted efforts of schools, parents and social service organizations could we help to nurture our younger generation."
    if it is correct, why it is not like "... service organization, we could..." ?

    Re: Only with ... could we

    Hello Chongrace,

    The subject of the sentence houses three plural nouns:

    schools (plural noun)
    parents (plural noun)
    orangizations (plural noun)

    The words social service functions as an adjective:

    "Only with concerted efforts of schools, parents and social service organizations could we help to nurture our younger generation."
