1. I grew 3 cm a year.
2. I grew by 3 cm a year.

(Does #1 mean #2? Is 'by' omitted before 3 cm? Then 'grew' is an intransitive verb. If not, 'grew' is a transitive verb.)

  • English - ,

    Both are correct.


  • English - ,

    Both statements suggest that — in the past — you grew 3 cm each year. If the growth was only in one year, you could designate the year:

    "I grew 3 cm last year."

    I hope t his helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
