"A" is incorrect [#permalink] New post 03 Apr 2004, 15:19
My last response to a CR made me think of this. It is not from any guide, just a statement, and want to find out which is correct and why? Thanks As I said, there is no OA, so we need to make prove which one is best! :stupid


Is any willing to prove "A" incorrect.

A) A incorrect
B) that A is incorrect
C) A to be incorrect
D) A as incorrect
E) A as to be incorrect.

C sounds the best answer to me. 'as incorrect' seems like a wrong idiom. 'that seems redundant in B. just incorrect in A seems insufficient.

Hmm, I am trying to understand the grammar rule here, I guess noone is willing to share or really knows which one is correct. Do we really need "that" in the sentence or not?

Honestly, I don't know the grammar rule for this one. However, I would pick A by refering to a commonly heard expression: "prove me wrong". "prove A incorrect" has the same construction and is the most concise.

That's what I think, but I am still not sure. When we use "A" here as a noun, do we need that or not? For instance. The defendant did not want to admit (that) he was guilty. See what I mean?

A) A incorrect
B) that A is incorrect
C) A to be incorrect
D) A as incorrect
E) A as to be incorrect.


Quote:
A) A [is] incorrect

please explain how it is possible to omit "is" here.
B is the only correct.

I will prove that A is incorrect
I will prove [omitted that] A is incorrect
imho, both are correct ...
plz correct me if smth is wrong.
