With all respect to the creators of this wonderful book

In a large city, it is dangerous to enter dark alleys at night.

How can it refer to city?

City is dangerous to enter dark alleys at night - doesn't make any sense to me :(
'it' seems placeholder here, yes?

In the directions, they said to attach the small piece to the top of the large piece.

How can 'they' refer to directions?

Directions said to attach the small piece to the top of the large piece - doesn't make any sense to me :(
'they' have no antecedent here, yes?

Dear team,
I have gone through the book Ultimate GMAT grammer chapter 2. I need more clarity on Article A/An use with vowel sounds. Kindly help with detailed explanation or some additional material.
Thanks in advance

I feel it is pretty clear. I don’t think it needs any more clarity than already has.

As you have failed to provide any specifics suggesting otherwise, I see no reason to expand more effort and energy on chasing vague statements.

Sir,

I get sc wrong answers due to word starting with a,e,I,o,u and it does not need an due to consonant sound and vice versa.
Also, I am non native English speaker. So, I need your advice in improving the article a/an.

In my experience, I don't remember coming across any GMAT questions that test "article usage" a vs an.
Very rarely usage of the vs a/an is tested.

Could you be more specific about your query or post any links of official questions that you just mentioned.

Dear Sir,

Consider the following statement:
The new boy acts as if he were a clown

This statement is correct and taken from "Ultimate Grammar Book". In Above statement, "he" is singular and still "were" is used. I need clarity on use of were/was in case of If+subject+was/were.

Thanks in advance

Hi

as if + subject + were is used for hypoyhetical scenarios

he is behaving as if he were a king .


means he is not a king but he is acting like a king .


hope this helps

I have a few issues:


1. Answer is C

2. You can’t say a couple corn. Corn is not a countable noun. Could be some corn or a couple ears of corn...

3. Please discuss in the topic: https://gmatclub.com/forum/alice-doesn- ... 13158.html

4. Use search!

Hi All,

I know posting my question here, would be kind of biased, but I don't mind ;)

I am re-starting to study verbal SC after a gap of over 6 months. Previously I have went through Aristotle twice (it has the basic grammar and explained it in very simple language), my question is what should I start with this gmat club grammar book or aristotle because it will just a quick revision for me?

So what do you all suggest? (I sincerely request to comment only if you have actually used GMAT Club Grammar book)
