How to correct this sentence Since 1980, the aids epidemic has continued to spread widely throughout the world.

  • college english -

    not sure what to do

  • college english -

    The word "widely" and "throughout the world" seem redundant. You might delete one or the other.

    More important, though, is this: The acronym is spelled with all caps -- AIDS -- since it stands for "acquired immune deficiency syndrome."

    * aids = helps
    * AIDS = acquired immune deficiency syndrome
    * aides = helpers

    Keep them straight.
