    Questions

    Hello,

    After (without sounding) we should use adj or adv?

    I would be grateful if you(are going to remove or could remove...)

    ....that looks the medicine and the things people eat.What is wrong with this sentence?

    Re: Questions

    Here's the first:

    1. How can I answer this without sounding facetious? [adj.]

    What do you think the answer is to the 2nd, !S?

    Re: Questions

    For #2, consider the implications of the two options:

    1. if you are going to remove
    2. if you could remove

    #2 is the more tentative option; #1 sounds quite definite.

    Now consider the form of the statement: "I would be grateful..." (i.e. it is a kind of request).

    Does that help you to choose the answer?
