I couldn't catch the flight.


Hi,
Can "make" also work instead of "catch" in the sentence above with the same meaning?


Thank you.

Sorry if I don't thank you more than once. I don't want to bother you by filling up a thread with multiple thank yous.
Topic: When figuring the cost of a car, don't eliminate such extras as air conditioning.

I found an e-book on the internet. I think it has been mistyped in my book. Because in the e-book it's not "don't eliminate. It's "eliminate.

In the e-book it's => When figuring the cost of a car, eliminate such extras as air conditioning.

Hi,
I know the meanings of each word in the blue part but I can't understand it as a whole. Would you please clarify this sentence to me? What's the whole meaning? What does the whole sentence want to tell us?

Thank you.

The highest mark was a B.

Hi,
The above sentence was used by a teacher saying to his students.

What happens if we omit the article "a" before the "B"? I mean => The highest mark was B.

Thank you.

Topic: pass score in the US?
Posted: Friday, July 28, 2017 8:07:57 AM
BrE: The pass mark is 70.
AmE: The passing grade is 70.

By the above sentences I mean the mark you need to be successful at school exams.

This is my question from Americans:

Is "pass score" also used in the US or not?


Thank you.
