Please write sentences like the example sentence above.

I had never thought about the difference in grammatical definition, but I think you are right. Both sound fine to me, although I think the first one sounds a little more natural. Probably just personal preference.

You are right, Philip![Y] It's one of the inexplicable peculiarities of English that the opposite of above can be used as an adverb only: Look at the sentence below.

Yet, with the pronoun one, it doesn't sound right as "like the above one". "The one above" sounds fine.

Hi,
