I have three questions to ask:
But my wife was killed a year later in a car accident. I was completely _______.
a. broken b. shattered
The key is 'b'. No problem. My qustion is: can I use 'a'. It would make sense.
They'd met _________ a Marriage Bureau.
a. through b. at
The key is 'a' which I think means ''as a result of''. My question is: Can I choose b which means 'place'?
You can, though usually one does not meet at the Bureau.
Speaking as a businessman this is the best dwal I've ever made.
Could you please explain if 'speak as' a phrase? I can't find it in my dictionary. speaking as - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
