4.Those mustard pickles taste too sour for me.
5.The only car for him is one of those new GTO's.
you are all illiterate. grammer? sentances? all these examples are copied from online. I am really concerned for education in America if this is how some schools are run.
@ Dick: You didn't capitalize anything that should be capitalized (except "America") and didn't put a question mark after "illiterate," so maybe you shouldn't be making fun of their questions. They are taking ONLINE courses so, of course, the examples should be "copied from online."
Most of these aren't correct.
all those are WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jason had a birthday party at his favorite Mexican restaurant
Of course they are taken from online courses because I am taking it myself. And let me tell you that I do have a hard time understanding English grammar. No matter how much time I spent with it, I get frustrated because it is hard for me. And just because they didn't spell something the right way do not judge them. They probably wrote it very quickly and didn't see the mistakes. I appreciate those people who helped.
This is BS!!! the majority of these are wrong:( put real answers not BS.
@JesusPotPie: For someone whose name is "JesusPotPie" you're not very positive. Who cares if they're wrong, atleast they're trying to help. If you think you can do better, do it.
Thanks to everyone who helped.
For future reference, you can not have a direct object and a predicate noun/subject compliment (they're the same thing) in the same sentence.
