Hi everyone,
Could I take your time and trouble answering the following questions ?
1.You have been working for hours. You can't ____ without a break.
A.go on working B.go on with working C.go on with your work
2.Does the phase "in times to come"mean in the future?
3.Does the sensence "41% of all sewage in China is made up of sewage flowing into the Yangze River?"right. If right ,does it have the same meaning with the sentence "Sewage flowing into the Yangtze River makes up 41% of all sewage in China."? :)

Hm. Well, to me go on working would mean to continue working, while go on with your work would mean to resume working after a break.

It varies. Some are happy with cold cereal and coffee. Or cold cereal and orange juice. Some have eggs and toast. Or eggs and bacon and toast. Some people (especially in the South) have grits with their breakfast. Some people eat pancakes with syrup on them, but that is not the kind of thing one usually has every day.

:D
