Also, the original sentence is correct as is and doesn't need "fixing" Also, the original sentence is correct as is and doesn't need "fixing" Wrong on both counts. You don't know much, do you.…
Such synonymous possibilities as are illustrated in XX are not equally acceptable. Te are rzuciło mi się w oczy ponieważ ja bym je pominął. Czy popełniłbym błąd? Czy jest jakaś róznica? You would be right. Two fixes are possible here: 1. Drop "are" altogether, as you said, (and ad two commas), or 2. Replace "as" with an unquestionable relative pronoun "which/that," The problem with "as" in your sentence above is that your "as" is adverbial in character but it pretends to be a pronoun. Secr…
you're talking about two different skils here, so 'reading and writing skills' Nope. Why only two? The English alphabet has 26 letters, each having its own upper and lower case to be skillfully used in all the right places. The art of reading and writing thus involves mastering 52 skills at the very least. And then there are punctuation marks, and all the combinations of letters and spaces… Look at the possibilities! You'd better start learning them now. Life is short, you know.…

Co jest nie tak z tym zdaniem ? There is a clash of the underlying definiteness of the interrogative pronoun which and the INdefiniteness of the choice string presented, i.e., of the indefinite "delayed antecedents" of which.

(a choice is given) (2) What would you rather be, a cat or a dog? (a choice is given) Do (1) and (2) mean the same? Are both correct? Would (3) be correct?

Countable or uncountable? I had one dinner today, you had two dinners today,...If I can count them, they are countable. Let's see...The answer was "meatballs." The mother must have known which dinner was meant. The uniqueness of the meal was obviously presumed. Why no "the" then?…
Child: Mom, what's for dinner? Mother: Meatballs, dear. "Mom, what's for dinner?" is a full blown sentence. It's got everything that constitutes a sentence. Why not "Mom, what's for a or the dinner?…

i. Rosemary’s ridiculous ideas are the source of constant amusement to me. ii. Rosemary’s ridiculous ideas are a constant source of amusement to me. Czy może mi ktoś wyjaśnić motywację za użyciem przedimków w tych dwóch zdaniach. Dlaczego w jednym jest a constant source a w drugim source?

All verbs? Can you find one that doesn't? Example 2: I am being patient from now on. For good. Temporariness applies only to the time dimension of a verb meaning. Its epistemic status exploited be the speaker explains much more: Example 2: Why do we have days and nights and seasons? Is it because the earth is rotating and spinning around the sun?

You have a CCTV camera that spies on some group of employees and a monitor on the wall in your office that lets you see who works and who idles, right? Your fat ass rests comfy in a chair, feet high on a cheap desk, donut in hand? That's what monitoring means. I don't know what you have in mind when you say "implemented" (something or treatment or other?), but I am pretty sure you do not really mean to say "implemented." Clue: What kitchen implements do you know? technical (technological, f…

Of is an emphatically defining word when it follows and restricts a relational singular noun. With singular relational nouns (N1), abstract or concrete, the N1 of N2 is a standard construction, N2 being definite or indefinite, countable or uncountable. When N1 is plural, you can test for the need of your fronting the and replace it with an unstressed "some." If unstressed "some" works tolerably well for you, you can dispose of the (and "some," if no some was originally intended.) Back to singul…
affraid afraid Verbs, as a rule, are content words and carry a meaning. Some kind of fear or fright should underlie a feeling of being afraid. I am afraid of the dark, venomous snakes, death,… but of being disallowed to leave the country? Miss Prissy, a hypocrite who feigns concern for humankind and pretends to be a caring person, might say "I am afraid you won't pass the test."
