Revise the folloing sentences to create parallel constructions.
Some students hate math; some students dislike math, and math is liked by other students.
Some students hate math, some dislike math, and some like math.
every way I have tried it just doesn't sound correct. Please help??
Try this: Some students hate math and others merely dislike it, however, many enjoy math.
Thank you very much. It reads much better and is probably proper, where mine..not as much.
got 1 more for you...
To succeed in the new economy, workers will have to learn thoughout their careers, adapt to changing circumstances, and self-motivation will be needed.
this is my version...
To succeed in the new economy workers have to learn throughout their career, adapt to changing circumstances and be self-motivated.
same problem..creat parallel constructions.
Thank you so much.
Your revision is good -- you've changed that last one so you have "parallel" verbs: learn, adapt, be
Your sentence will be better if you put a comma after "circumstances."
