Sentence in Kaplan Book:

It is common for a native New Yorker who has never driven a car to move to another part of the country and have to learn to do it.

I know the 'it' in the beginning of the sentence (It is common...)is 'impersonal it'. I need to know whether the 'it' at the end of the sentence (...to do it) is refering to the car or is it also an impersonal it?

Regards

Emad

Hi

I do not know whether that "it" is impersonal or not, but what I know for sure is that it is no good to use it :)

I think Kaplan explains this case. There must be "so", meaning "doing this way"

Emad,
I think Sergei refers to the last "it"

The first one looks OK to me, but the last one is definitely incorrect usage. It needs to be substituted with "so".

Hi

Yes, exactly,
Bogdan is quite right, I meant the usage of the last "it".

Have a nice day guys

BTW. Bogdan how are you?
