Topic: Be especially
Posted: Saturday, June 16, 2018 2:31:40 PM
In my opinion, "be" is used as an imperative here. You could split the first sentence into two:

Never leave medications lying around. Be especially careful when medications are mixed .......

Both sentences command you to do (or not to do) something.
Topic: cap (pistols)

Could it be a silencer (muffler), i.e. a jig that is used for making the shot less noisy?

Topic: I have English exam . Help me!!

Hi Romina,

2) is not correct.

If you ask about the subject, you must use normal word order (without inversion or the auxiliary do):

He watched the movie last night. (He is the subject)

Who watched the movie last night? (The answer is He did)

I tried it with your name and it works. Use your name exactly as in your posts (Jigneshbharati).

Go to Forum Search at the top of the page, choose the forum(s) that you want to search, select the Posted By option (instead of Posts), write your name into the Search field and press Search.

Maybe there's a simpler way, I normally use this.
Topic: Except if, thar
Posted: Sunday, June 3, 2018 3:51:26 PM
My guess is that it's a simple misprint and should have been:

except if that had happened and the table fell over!

Sorry, Thar, if there's some deeper meaning in it that I've missed.
Topic: Are pleased

I think it can be considered a passive construction.

If someone pleases you then you are pleased.

Topic: They are building basketball court/field
Posted: Tuesday, May 22, 2018 5:28:12 AM
And also mind your question. It should be:

What is the difference between court and field?


What are the differences between court and field?

Topic: until two or three years ago
Posted: Friday, May 18, 2018 6:58:59 AM
Would the use of the past perfect continuous tense be an overkill?

He had been working for his previous employer for at least five years until two or three years ago.
