Which of the following is ACCURATE in terms of the words it uses?

a) "There is a large amount of people at the convention."

b) "We have to decided between the four options available to us."

c) "Fewer people will attend the conference this year because of the higher costs."

d) "The speech had a profound affect on the audience."


I thought it was (d), but started second guessing myself, should it be affect or effect?? So then I thought it was (b).

    Which of the following is ACCURATE in terms of the words it uses?

    a) "There is a large amount of people at the convention."
    inaccurate -- what does "large amount" really mean?

    b) "We have to decided between the four options available to us."

    c) "Fewer people will attend the conference this year because of the higher costs."
    How many are "fewer"? How much is "higher"?

    d) "The speech had a profound affect on the audience."
    You mean "effect," right? Exactly what does "profound" mean here?


    I thought it was (d), but started second guessing myself, should it be affect or effect?? So then I thought it was (b).
    There are grammatical errors in (b), but it's the only one without vague terms in it. It should read like this:
    We have to decide among the four options available to us.

  • Business Communication -

    "between" = two people or things

    "among" = three or more...

  • Business Communication -

    a) "Amount" is used with mass nouns; it would be right to say "large number of people"
    b) "Between" - means between two. The right way to say "among four options"
    c) is correct - and the previous answer really was bs; why are you answering if you don't know

    d) "profound effect" is correct. The word "affect" has a different meaning - you may look it up.
