Can someone please give a good link where I can study the most common idioms used in Gmat with correct and wrong usage?

Also which one is right

Estimated that OR Estimated to be

I demand that the work be completed
Or
I demand the work be completed

Discourage to OR Discourage From

If anyone can answer it would be great.
Thank You

Estimated that OR Estimated to be
--- Both correct
eg 01 : By 2025, it is estimated that 1B people will be literate, representing one-fifth of earth's population.
eg 02: The population that year was estimated to be 1B, from which it is seen that the annual costs to the nation were no less than $2B.


I demand that the work be completed Or I demand the work be completed
-Subjunctive Use - check out the link : https://gmatclub.com/forum/my-notes-sub ... fl=similar

Discourage to OR Discourage From
- I believe 'discourage from' is ok- equivalent to 'refrain from' : eg 03: I had never tried to discourage you from doing anything.


Hope this helps!!

When I needed idioms, I always used different services, for example papersowl, but if you don’t find this service here there is a review EssayReviewExpert for other resources with idioms and even an essay. By the way, I used idioms even at a wedding and when I just had to give an important speech to the public. I hope that these services will help you and you will find something that can solve your question.
