Hello,

in the fourth episode of elementary's final season, Sherlock is speaking with the ex-leader of a gang about a car accident. The car accident happened because someone manipulated the traffic lights.

Sherlock: 'Neither Bosco nor the truck driver ran a red light, because they both had greens.'

I'm wondering why 'greens' is used, not 'green'?
Is it because they are talking about two traffic lights and/with two green signal lights?
Could I also use 'green' in this sentence?

Thank you!

Thank you all for your help and time! I really appreciate it.

@Drag0n - Now, I feel like I should read more about Goldilocks ;) Have a nice evening!

@thar - It was definitely the chef's fault. ;) I don't even remember if there was salt on the table. Oil and vinegar, but salt ...? Wish you a nice evening!

@NKM - Sorry, but I have no idea what 'a Greek chef' means. In my language, we say: If the food is salty, the chef is in love. Maybe in English it is a 'greek chef'? A nice evening to you!

Hello,

Yesterday, my family and I went to a new restaurant, and today my coworkers asked me how it was:

The food was too salty for my taste but the service and atmosphere were great.
There was too much salt on the food for my taste but the service and atmosphere were great.

Are both sentences correct, and which one sounds better?

Thanks!

Is this sentences correct?

The car has been parked very close to the kerb that the tyre is pushing in.

Thank you!
