Hi there,

I have some questions here and hoping you could help me. Thanks!



1. Are the sentences below correct?

He is one of my best Net pal.

He is the best Net pal of mine.(It doesn’t sound right to me, but is there any way to rewrite this sentence by using “ …mine”?)



2. She was angry at / about her boyfriend’s being late again.

The answer key says “at” is the correct answer. However, isn’t be angry about indicating the behavior rather than the person?



3. Any difference between these two?

I don’t understand why he would like her.

I don’t understand why he likes her.



4. Which is correct?

These books have been sold millions of copies, so far.

These books have sold millions of copies, so far.

He is one of my best Net pals By using "one of" you must pluralize "pals".
He is my best Net pal.

You cannot use "mine" in this sentence.

Hello.

«2. She was angry at / about her boyfriend’s being late again.

I agree with you here. Both are posiible, depending on the implied meaning. Although it will sound a bit strange, you may be just angry about the situation, not angry _at_ him. Her boyfriend may be not guilty of coming late, right?

«I don’t understand why he would like her.
I don’t understand why he likes her.»

The second clearly states he likes her.

«4. Which is correct?
These books have been sold millions of copies, so far.
These books (I'd say "this book") have sold millions of copies, so far.»

The second one. Compare:

«A million copies of this book have been sold»
