there s no point to try to stop them
It would be very helpful to see the CORRECT choice at the end of the poll. Thanks
please, let us know the correct answer whenever the poll finishes!
it's the frist time to vivsit using english
"in trying" is correct but "trying" sounds more natural
this is a formula: 'no point in ...ing sth'
For many of these, there is no clear-cut correct answer. The poll is primarily a gauge of common usage, which for idiomatic expressions, determines correctness.
There's no point trying to stop them.
Well... it's THERE'S NO POIN IN TRYING to stop them
I'm amazed that most of the people vote for TRYING!! OMG!
Why add 'in' - it is unnecessary, and grammatically speaking, 'trying' is correct.
