"You can't qualify for a Home Beautiful credit card until you are 18 years old."
Indicate the alternative that both correctly evaluates the sentence and correctly explains the reason for the evaluation.
a. Good you-attitude because it begins with the word "you"
b. Good you-attitude because it focuses on what the reader will (or won't) receive
c. Lacks you-attitude because it does not thank the reader for shopping at HomeBeautiful
d. Lacks you-attitude because it does not protect the reader's feelings
I'll be glad to comment on your answer.
My answer is B
I don't like b because the original statement is negative. It tells the reader what s/he won't receive.
My first answer was D
I think D is correct.
Thank you kindly Sue. Your help has been greatly appreciated.
You're very welcome, Jdub.
