I, while assuming that i am working on the verbal section of gmatclub.com, had put up this SC note. It would be great if any of the the moderators or any body can shift this to verbal section.
Thanks

Is it OK? [#permalink] New post 03 Apr 2007, 09:01

In the posted document I have found :
9)If v/s. Whether: If introduces a condition, whether produces a choice
Whether to go or not to go.
If I go, he will come.

Use of "Whether...or not..." is correct? Manhattan SC note says to avoid "Whether...or not..." and "numbers of", second one is ok but what's about first? :shock:

Thanks...

"Whether ... or not" is often redundant. Try to not use it. Only "Whether" is sufficient to introduce a choice. "Not" is assumed.

Perplexed ... [#permalink] New post 05 Apr 2007, 05:05
I mazed with two different explanations. One is in another link in GMATclub forum,
on "Compared to V/s Compared with". and another is inside sahil's doc.
Sahil's document says,
3) Compared to v/s. Compared with: To show comparison between unlike things, ‘compare to’ is used. To show comparison between like things, ‘compare with’ is used.
e.g. He compared her to a summer day.
Scientists compare the human brain to a computer. (Unlike thing)

The police compared the forged signature with the original. (Like things)

And aforesaid link says,
27. compare to vs compare with
compare to - use when two things are alike
compare with - use when two things are not alike


-- Which one is correct? :shock: Thanks.

"Compare usually takes the preposition to when it refers to the activity of describing the resemblances between unlike things: He compared her to a summer day. Scientists sometimes compare the human brain to a computer. It takes with when it refers to the act of examining two like things in order to discern their similarities or differences: The police compared the forged signature with the original.
