IMO E

Access to vs access for. I think access to is correct here.
"At first in history" in AC seems very awkward.

(A) At first in history, millions of people have virtual instant access from
their homes and offices to
"At first in history" is unidiomatic
(B) For the first time in history, millions of people have virtual instant access
from their homes and offices for
"access...for" is unidiomatic
(C) At the first of history, millions of people have virtual instant access from
their homes and offices in
"At first in history" is unidiomatic
(D) For the first of history, millions of people have virtually instant access
from their homes to
"For the first of history" is undiomatic
(E) For the first time in history, millions of people have virtually instant
access from their homes to
Correct usage of "for the first time in history" and "access...to"

Hi,

Please explain the difference between Virtual instant access to virtual instant access.

Confused as which one should be right?

@vivekdixit07

I guess you mean to say virtually instant access and virtual instant access

IMO virtually (adverb) modifies adjective(instant )

adverb modifies adjective

At first in history, millions ofpeople have virtual instantaccess from their
homes and offices
to the creative output of a significant — and growing —
fraction of the planet's population.


Thus the reduced stem : People have access to the creative output......................

Vertical scan : A / D / E to fit the bill =============== B & C disappears

2nd split : Bxn A , D , E

A) At first in history................................

(D) For the first of history.......................

(E) For the first time in history.................

which one would u zone in on ? Guess from our daily usage ............... for the first time in history

Leading to E , my take
