Hi, :-D

What's the answer to the below sentence?

I lost the book. I bought it a month before that.
-> I lost the book I had bought it a month(ago/before)?
I think the answer is 'before'. But is 'ago' possible?

Thank you...:)

I lost the book. I bought it a month ago.

I lost the book. I bought it a month before that. What does 'that' refer to in the sentence??

-> I lost the book. I had bought it a month before. -Before what?

That means 'the time' I lost the book.
Before the time I lost the book.
