Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I feel A is better than B. My rationale to choose A is that
the sentence does not have any time reference. If there is
a time reference than we can use simple past -- did. Lacking
time reference forced me to choose A, which uses present perfect
-- have [lived].
B is correct, I believe.
B - here "live" refers to the lifestyle. Thus, simple past is justified because lifestyle of the present generation is compared with that of the previous generation.
A - incomplete because of "have"
C - incomplete because of "had". Also "had lived" gives a wrong connotation that the parents are no more;-)
D & E - "expecting" after ";" without subject is ungrammatical.
Since the OA is not yet given by Bhai, I will give my thoughts about this question too.
D and E are not right for me, because I believe "they" can be used.
I am leaning towards B.
they still expect to live better than their parents did. It sounds better in my ears, and I do believe with this verb you can avoid the repetition.
I live in The Netherlands and we speak Dutch. Dutch, German and English belong all to the German (germaanse) language and many grammar is simular. I sometimes translate sentences to the Dutch language. I was just wondering how many of you are able to do the same and if this is an benefit for you.
