  1. Ms. Sue

    I agree with your first three answers, but not the fourth.

  2. Reed

    I disagree with #2. "profits" is plural.

  3. marylyn

    Okay, thank you so much! I will go read some more.

  4. Ms. Sue

    Reed- profits is not the subject. It's in a prepositional phrase. <g>

  5. Ms. Sue

    Don't tell anyone, but I was one of Reed's high school English teachers.

    Your secret is safe in this arena : )
    Best wishes Reed.
    English is tricky at the best of times.

  7. Ms. Sue

    The other side of this is that he knows far more than I do about most editing and interpreting literature.

  8. Reed

    You're right, Ms. Sue. My bad. ( Sorry, Marylyn

  9. Ms. Sue

    I almost missed it myself. :-)
