Interesting question. Eliminating a specific word took a bit more time. I think that is more logical than grammatical.

Looking forward to OA and OE.

I think it's just a matter of elimination of one word..

Some obvious errors made the elimination easier. Good question.

A good one. Had the clever use of 'who' vs 'whom' & some subtle meaning error. Was tricky but not tough !! :-D Thanx again Souvik and BB for your painstaking efforts in our successes.
