(A) increases in wages that it expected to approve as a result of negotiations (B) increased wages it expected to approve from negotiations (C) increasing wages expected to be approved as a result of negotiating why B and C error? thank you B) increased is wrong b/c wages are yet to be approved, and not already approved. C) increasing is wrong b/c present continuous tense doesn't hold good. wages are not increasing, they are going to increase (and that will be one time).

Then, what's the difference in A, B, and C. Could you explain more ? thank you 28 Jun 2004, 20:50 Similar topics Replies Last post Similar Topics: 7 At the beginning of the year, the city allocated$150 7 04 Jan 2011, 11:34
