The CEO"S of big corporations are not there = They didn't become CEO"S just because.... = The CEO's are not there only to......


Please explain why I should understand like that.

Thank you

Prince.

Nope. To know what the author is saying, we need at least a couple of sentences (maybe a paragraph) from before you started your quote. As it is, this looks like the author is speaking about some meeting or event the CEOs don't attend.

Give us some more context and we will be better able to answer your question.



There is one company that always insists on meetings, readings and seminars all are meant to self motivate or create passion among the students aspiring to become entrepreneurs. so one critic is openly questioning the company why they are focusing too much on these motivational seminars which are boring because to him its like replaying the same video over and over again instead they can use the valuable time in training strategies, methodologies , and other technical aspects of a business.

Hi Prince.

Because I know your "hobbies" and location, it is easy to understand these sentences - but "SA" is not a common abbreviation in Britain and I would not immediately guess it.
Also "slips" has other, more likely meanings in the icy and snowy winter of Britain! (Have you ever played cricket on ice?

"Blinders" is also an 'odd' word to me. I knew it (when I was young) in the phrase "he played a blinder" - he played a great game.

"Diving forward" feels awkward, but the wording seems OK - it is just that I can't find the best place in the sentence for it.

However, grammatically, the first sentence seems OK.
I would use the perfect "could have caught", but I don't think the simple present "could catch" is wrong.

To make it a little clearer in local terms here, I'd write it:
"I see no way any other team could have made the brilliant catches that the SA slips pulled off in the second innings by diving forward."

**************
The second one contains a typo which makes it sound odd. Both 'any's are unnecessary

I definitely would NOT use the perfect in the second section - definitely "pulled off" not "have pulled off".

"I think there's no other team could have caught those slip catches that SA fielders pulled off diving forward in the second innings."


Thank you very much for the detailed understanding and guessing the correct context to correct me .

"I see no way in which any other team could catch the blinders SA slips pulled off diving forward in the second innings."

"I think there's no any any other team could have caught those slip catches that SA fielders have pulled off diving forward in the second innings."


Kindly correct me the mistakes in both the above sentences and also suggest me which is most effective.


Thank you

Hey prince, -

This is a Dictionary site! YOU can see from the definitions that the two words have different meanings.

So why would you want to interchange these two particular words?

I'm afraid I don't understand.



I can understand why you don't understand the reason I don't refer to Dictionary for meanings.

Here in this case( above question) I thought caveat and arsenal can be used as a metaphors to convey some meaning to a sentence which I thought is same for both .



Thank you
