Hello.
I will be very grateful for your help.
1)Which is correct: "he called me a)in an hour, b) after an hour"?
2)Is it possible to use "dismiss" in the context: "Many plants and factories are now dismissing workers"?
3)Is it possible to use "convert" in the following context: "The Middle East is converting into a real volcano"? (maybe, "turning"?)
Thank you for all you help.

  • English -

    1. Either one works, but a) is most commonly used.

    2. I'd say the bosses or managers at many plants and factories are dismissing the workers.

    3. "turning" is far better.
