I have a quick question. For Exercise 40 question 5
The president ordered that Congress takes an action on the bill soon.
Why is it correct in the answer? Does takes need to change to take?

Thank you

Both versions are updated simultaneously (we use Amazon's on demand printing)

Yes it does. See the page 266 where the answers are posted. It has to be "take"

About an hour back I downloaded the e-book and the book is great. Kudos to bb!!!

Btw, I need a clarification in Exercise 4: Using Other/Another
sentence 4: I have a large stamp collection. The stamps in this section are from the United States. Others are from other places in the world.

I feel that Others should be replaced by The others because we are specific in the previous sentence (The stamps "in this section"). Please clarify.

Further, please let me know whether the following can be added to my rule book.

- 'another' will never be preceded by 'the'

I think it depends on the assumptions as you have specifically pointed out and that's what will drive the answer.

Scenario 1: you have 3 sections in an area and you point to one section and in this case, you should use "the others" because "the others" is very specific and you can pretty much point to them. You would use "the" if you could be pretty specific about the remaining stamps.

Scenario 2: you have a section in a museum and then you have many other sections (you don't even know how many) and in that case it will be "others" since it is not specific.


I don't know how to make it more specific or less specific so that only one scenario works out, so may have to remove this particular example. This has been the most of what we have had to revise/update the grammar book with - making sure it could not be interpreted in multiple ways.

Correct, since another is a+other, so there is an article there already.

Exercise 8: Q1. Why is 'will go' not the correct answer? :?:
It seems to be simple future tense. like Many birds will migrate south for the winter.

Yes it is print enabled. But why waste paper? Read it as pdf and save trees.

I would agree. It is not a clear/clean cut. I will change the answer key to just Future Simple since there is no other action happening to require Future Progressive.

Thanks. There is one more point, on page 83 instead of "Mark like to swim." it should be "Mark likes to swim."

Hi,

I purchased this book on October 26, 2010. I would like to know whether there is any newer/upgraded version of this book available. If yes, please tell me how to get that one.

I have a receipt number also (in case you need).
