What is wrong with the following sentence?
Do you advise me to go to college or that I should get a job after high school?
2. Misplaced part
3. Lacks parallel parts.
4. Properly constructed sentence
Your sentence lacks parallel parts. The first part of your sentence is:
"Do you advise me to go to college or . . ."
The rest of your sentence should continue the infinitive construction --"Do you advise me to ..." One way to correct it is:
"Do you advise me to go to college or GET A JOB AFTER HIGH SCHOOL?"
What is a properly constructed sentence?
