Homework Help: Language Arts

Posted by Satie on Saturday, January 2, 2010 at 11:52am.

"If residents were to separate recyclable materials apart from the daily trash, the cost of refuse disposal would be greatly reduced." I said change b should be made: separate recyclable materials from the daily trash so it reads "if residents separate recyclable materaials from the daily trash, the cost of refuse disposal would be greatly reduced." But it's wrong according to my SAT book. The correct answer is "If residents were to separate recyclable materials from the daily trash." Why isn't my way correct since it's shorter and simpler?
