Homework Help: English

Posted by Tucker on Tuesday, August 30, 2011 at 3:36am.

I've been given 20 sentences which I must revise so that the nominalizations are verbs and characters the subjects of those verbs, but can't quite figure it out. [nominalizations] and <characters>

1. [Attempts] were made on the part of <President Nixon's aides> to assert <his> [immunity] from a Supreme Court subpoena.

I think it starts off as "President Nixon's aides attempted to..." but that's all I have.

2. There were [predictions] by <members of the Administration> that the <nominee> would receive quick <committee> [approval]

I'm guessing "Members of the Administration predicted that the nominee would be approved by the committee", but again I'm not sure.

3. The <author's> [analysis] of our data omits any citation of sources that would provide [support] for <his> criticism of our argument.

This one I'm really stuck on.

So there you have it; if I can get help on these three I trust I will be able to figure the rest out.
