In which sentence is ceased used inappropriately and why:

A. After the rain ceased, the sun came out.
B. When the teacher told us to be quiet, we ceased talking.
C. When we were full, we ceased eating.
D. When it got cold, we ceased wearing our jackets.

Is it "A?" If so, why?

    No, it's not A. That sentence uses "ceased" correctly.

    Read each sentence very carefully and think about it.

    I didn't see the answer at first until it rose up and hit me!

    Yes. LOL! We don't STOP wearing jackets when it gets cold!
