    alibi/excuse

    1. Kevin's friends helped him cheat on his wife by supplying alibis for his missing hours.

    2. Mary's classmates helped her skip class by supplying excuses for her missing hours.


    Are these two sentences correct? If not, would you explain why?



    Thanks a lot.

    Yes, they are both correct, and they illustrate the difference between an alibi and an excuse.
