For each of the following sentences, write the elliptical clause. Next to it, write out the full adverb clause, adding the understood words.
1). The Dead Sea in Israel has a lower elevation than Death Valley in California.
2). I enjoy Jerusalem more than Tel Aviv.
3). Israel's population is larger than Ireland's.
4). Israel's history is as interesting as ours.
5). I have spent more time in Israel than in Lebanon.
I am unsure of the directions as well as the answers to these problems. Can someone help me?
An elliptical clause has some words left out. I'll underline the elliptical clause.
1). The Dead Sea in Israel has a lower elevation than Death Valley in California does.
2). I enjoy Jerusalem more than I do Tel Aviv.
Study this site and try the others.
I'll be glad to check your answers.
