Hi There,

Could you correct me or tell me your opinions in these following sentences, please?


1) It's done, can't be undone.

Can I interpret it as "It is / has done, can't be undone." (is and has both are correct?)

2) 8 out of 10 vs 8 of 10 (Exactly same meaning)

3) It has a age vs It has aged (Both correct in the grammar and meaning, Noun and Verb)


Thanks

John Aki1) It's done, can't be undone.

That is not good. You meant to write this:

What's done can't be undone.

or this:

It's done and can't be undone.

John Aki2) 8 out of 10 vs 8 of 10 (Exactly same meaning)

I nearly always say, e.g. 8 out of 10 people like coffee.

John Aki3) It has a age vs It has aged (Both correct in the grammar and meaning, Noun and Verb)

It has aged. (correct, said of certain wines or cheeses.)


The meaning of this is different:

It has an age of ten years.
