    Re: Question 14

    Ex: Judy wanted to postpone the wedding for another two weeks.

    No, it's fine, at least the for another two weeks part. It means that Judy had postponed the wedding for two weeks before and now she wants to postpone it again, this time for the same length of time: another two weeks.

    Re: Question 14

    If you want to say 'two or three weeks' you should say; '...for two or three weeks.' not 'another two or three weeks'.
