  1. What are the TWO characteristics being used here to describe the "I"? They need to be phrased similarly. Right now, here's how they are:

    a quick worker

    I am careful

    How can you make them alike?

    I am a _________ and __________ worker.

  2. So you are saying I should remove both and the correct way is I am a Quick worker and a careful worker?

    You want the elements to be parallel, AND you want to avoid repeating words in the sentence.

  4. ok. I got it thanks!
