Anonymous:In writing, instead of using the word "you" continually, can the sentence be formed in such a way that the word "you" is implied? What do you call this and is it an acceptable form of writing? Thank you!
Yes, a sentence can be written without using "You".
Please see the example;
1. If you give me an opportunity to work as sales officer, I will prove an asset to the company.
2. If given an opportunity to work as sales officer, I will prove an asset to the company.
If you give me = If I am given
