I love to go to the seaside in summer. It ______ good to lie in the sun or swim in the cool sea.
A. does B. feels C. gets D. makes
The given answer is B. Some people say A is fine too. Is that so?
Could I ask native speakers to help me please? Thanks a lot.
2006 is correct, it's not good English. However, a native speaker might say it, and certainly would understand it, and not think the speaker was "foreign" for using it. Properly, "it does one good," but we tend to find excuses not to use the rather formal "one" in common speech. So, we just gloss it, or skip it entirely. Perhaps more common would be "It's good to lie in the sun..." - shorter yet.
And, going from the elliptical to the grandiloquent, 'It is beneficial to lie in the sun'
