First, which are your choices, desk zany 445?

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

Hello Mister Micawber, my choices are:

1 - D (Because of the linking verbs.)

2 - A or B ("which somehow helps her feel better" is it a clause? I can't see a subject.)

3 - I have no idea here.

4 - C (Because it have a lot of dependent clauses and one independent.)

5 - B (It is a complement because it is not required for the sentence to make sense.)

6 - A (It is used with linking verbs.)

7 - C (Because of the linking verb.)

8 - A (Because of the preposition "in".)

9 - I have no idea here too.

10 - A

desk zany, there are three reasons why you should ask only one question per thread rather than ten:


1. You'll get quicker answers. Somebody might want to answer one of the questions but have neither the time nor the knowledge to answer all of them.

2. Somebody may answer one question, ignoring the others. This means you will probably have to post again saying 'What about the other questions?'

3. Somebody may answer two or more questions. You may have a supplementary question about one answer and somebody else may suggest an alternative answer to the other — whilst a third person may respond to your follow-up question on the first answer and a fourth person may then respond to a previously unanswered question. When different people start to discuss different questions — each possibly generating alternatives and follow-ups — the thread soon begins to get hopelessly muddled and out of control.

Thanks for the advice! I've made the questions separately now.

1 - D (Because of the linking verbs.) — No, they are the objects of 'believe' and 'think'.

2 - B ("which somehow helps her feel better" is it a clause? — Yes. I can't see a subject.— They don't need one.)

3 -B

4 - C (Because it has one dependent clause.)

5 - B (It is a complement because it is not required for the sentence to make sense.— That reason is irrelevant)

6 - A (It is used with linking verbs.)

7 - C (Because of the linking verb.— That is an irrelevant and incorrect remark)

8 - A (Because of the preposition "in".)

9 - I have no idea here too.— Nor do I. It is wrongly structured.

10 - A
