OA is (E). HongHu... why did you choose the one with "were" when the sentence is in present "earn". Thanks

Folaa3..I am not sure what you mean by OE?? I found this practice question somewhere online with just the answer and no explanation.

It's like this one:

He moves so fast as if he were a tiger plunging toward his prey.

(He isn't really a tiger.)

I forgot what this is called grammartically. Maybe Paul could give you a good explanation. :)
