4th grade grammar
"good" is used to describe someone or something. "well" is used to tell HOW something should be DONE (a verb, usually) So ask yourself this: Is the word describing the campsite? Or is the word telling HOW it should be cleaned?
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 9:54am

4th grade grammar
1. clean the campsite well or good 2. eat well or good

Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 9:40pm

You convinced me, Summer. With that wording, it does not need an apostrophe.

Grammar...
The "that of" makes the sister possessive- no need to be possessive twice.
Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 9:36pm

Grammar...
I disagree with Summer. The sentence implies that the coat is different than her sister's coat. The apostrophe is needed.
Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 9:33pm

Grammar...
Even better would be this: Her coat is different from her sister's.
Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 9:32pm

Grammar...
No- It would be: Her coat is different from that of her sister.
Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 9:24pm
