Hello :)

Automation of manufacturing process makes the production cheaper and more effective than it used to be in the past. Original sentence

The automation of the manufacturing process makes production cheaper and more effective than it used to be in the past. Corrected by the teacher

Could you explain the usage of "the" in this sentence. I understand the need for "the" before Automation now, but what about other definite articles in this sentence. why before manufacturing process and not before production ?

Cheers :)

While most Americans become severely deficient in Vitamin D during winter months, children can actually be poisoned from an overdose of the same vitamin. So don't give your kids a regular dose of Vitamin D during the summer, and watch out for artificial colors and other yucky additives in their multivitamin!

got it!

thanks everyone Applause

Yes that is a strange task.

He has stopped having his sports jackets made


the best what comes to mind is: He has his production of sports jackets stopped/discontinued.


(Harry's doing ok, he had a new car bought for him yesterday)

what was he poisoned by ? Applause


I don't how know to use "from" in this context. He was poisoned from the food he had eaten? Does it make sense ?

Yes! to first, it seems too obvious now Brick wall


As for the second we can't change the tenses in the task, but in real life sure Applause


Because "What was he poisoned with" implies murder and I want a sentence that doesn't imply any murder.


Thanks.

when I want to turn "What poisoned him?" into passive voice I get "What was he poisoned with?"

is there another possibility ?
