Hi,

Could you please check for me, am I using these words correctly?


There is no indication in measurements.

Measurements indicate in meters.

Measurements are indicative in meters.

Justice is sometime elusive. (Difficult to achieve)

This answer is elusive. (Difficult to find)

He is elusive. (Difficult to find)

His movement is elusive. (Difficult to figure out his movement, more likely is sports or action)

None of these are really viable. I'm not even certain what you mean by the first one. Possibly you mean something like "No units of measurement are given"? For the second two, you may just mean "Measurements are in metres".

I suppose these are all possible. The "literature" and "movement" sentences seem least likely.

I can't tell what this means.

John AkiMeasurements indicate in meters.

No. Maybe they are displayed in meters.

John AkiMeasurements are indicative in meters.

"Indicative" is a different word.

OK.

John AkiLiterature sometimes is elusive. (Difficult to understand)

That is possible, but what you really mean is that its meaning is elusive, and it sounds like you messed up trying to say that.

John AkiThis answer is elusive. (Difficult to find)

OK.

John AkiHe is elusive. (Difficult to find)

OK.

John AkiHis movement is elusive. (Difficult to figure out his movement, more likely is sports or action)

I don't like it. It is he who is elusive, not his movements. I guess it's possible.
