Hello, Do you concur that the adjectives "beautiful" and "perfect" are used as nouns in the sentences "Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?" and "Would you let me see beneath your perfect?" Or am I getting this wrong? Thank you in advance, teachers.

In the following sentence, the word 'of' to connect two equivalent phrases is omitted. We can offer you a job ( of ) cleaning cars . Is the omission like that permitted at every exam and is it quite the thing in the spoken English? Can I take it the omission like that is the same as the 'a common noun plus a proper noun' pattern as in the follwing sentence. I love this book 'Of Human Bondage' more than any other books.; There isn't a comma between a common noun and a proper noun. (I really like the book and have read it three times until now.)

I left the kitchen window open, because there was still a hamsin this morning, I didn't think he would go out, why should he have gone out, what did he lack at home. ******* Hello, Gurus and Members!! The underlined part seems to mean, "Why he had to go out". In this case, "should have done" means "had to do", which is very unfamiliar and doesn't appear in most grammar books. What is the native's sense of English regarding this issue?

I guess that the reason why mine was corrected is that I am now able to use the UBER app and so my friend replaced my past tense with his present perfect tense. Mine : Since I bought iPhone 4S, I can use the UBER app. Corrected sentence : Since I have bought iPhone 4S, I can use the UBER app.
