which is correct?
Apple's interest in water began in 1960 with the (acquisition/takeover) of 20% of Orange.
After the (acquisition/takeover) of Pear in 1999 the new company became a major part of Apple Group....
I would say (acquisition) then (takeover)....
Please do correct me.thanks.
Also, I'm not sure if there should be an article at the end or not. I've added one.
