hi, I Have some questions,

1.What's Difference between "most time" and " most of the time"?

2.in this test:

x----------the farther it gets from the surface of the Earth.
(A) The less a body weighs (B) The less weighs a body
(C) A body weighs less (D) The less does a body weigh

why C is correct? what is the meaning of "less the farther"!?

thanks

1. I cannot think of a situation where I would use 'most time.
2. Only A is correct.

I agree about #1. In #2, C is correct.

C is the correct answer. However, "less the farther" is not a phrase you need to understand. "less" and "the farther" are two different parts of the sentence.

A body weighs less..........the farther it gets from the Earth.

Something to do with gravity (!) Another way of putting it would be:

As a body gets farther away from the Earth, it begins to weigh less.

Sorry, I misread the sentence. Or rather, I did not read the sentence. C. And I teach physics?!

It shows g = g(r) --> G(r) = mg(r) --> dr>0 --> dG<0

Hi

The less a body weighs, the farther it [ the body ] gets from the surface of the Earth.

See the following example:

The more [people] we are, the merrier we`ll be.

The answer C is not correct. It could be correct if we made some changes:

A body weighs less if it gets farther from the surface of the Earth

I'm sorry, but that's wrong! Your grammatical point is correct, but the sentence also has to make sense. The way you've written it means that heavier people would stay on the surface of the Earth, but if you start to lose weight, you will get farther away from the Earth. That would be very impractical!!!

Yes, you are right!:up: I haven`t even thought of such a huge change in meaning even if the grammar point was somehow correct.

Thank you.

Thank you.[/QUOTE

You're welcome! I think the result of Answer A is actually quite amusing. A couple of years ago, I lost about 28 lbs in weight. I think that means I should now be floating several inches above the planet! I'm mildly disappointed that I'm not. :-D

Well, it might be interesting for you- and for us, as well - to levitate, raising your body as in defiance of gravity.
As far as I`m concerned, I weigh about 55 kg. In this case, I should be floating somewhere in the sky at this time, shouldn`t I?:lol:
