    Cool hindered

    Hi,

    Is the following sentence correct?

    We cannot go out because the way out is hindered.

    If it's wrong can someone give examples with the verb 'hinder'?

    Re: hindered

    We cannot go out because the way out is hindered.
    I would prefer:
    We cannot go out because the way out is obstructed.

    The word 'hinder' is used when talking about progress(to prevent/delay) rather than physical obstructions.

    not a teacher
