  1. In this sentence "except" is a preposition. Its object is "one." The phrase, "except one" is used an adjective, modifying "reports."

    The next time you're stuck on a part of speech check a dictionary.

  2. After having already studied for a four year bachelor degree a solid commitment to study veterinary medicine for four more years is needed by a student if he or she wants to become a veterinary. In veterinary school, instructors learn their student animal medicine. This involves a lot of science math and communication as well as some business administration. The graduates receive veterinary college diplomas on, they're office walls which they can hang. However, what if a person interested in animals don't want to set threw four years of veterinary school or lend money to do so. A person might think instead about becoming a veterinary technician a person whom assists a veterinarian. People can usually become veterinary technicians with awo year college degree.
