Topic: He/She/It
Posted: Friday, July 27, 2018 1:15:04 PM
Suppose I can see a running person in the distance and I can't tell whether that person is a man or a woman. Which word in red should I use:

"Can you see someone in the field over there? He/She/It is running really fast."
You should use none.


I can't tell whether that person is a man or a woman.(needs some correction).

From this distance, I am unable to figure the gender of the person running but that is running really fast.IMO

Topic: Once the appeal was filed in the City Hall
Posted: Friday, July 27, 2018 1:02:18 PM
I would write it as follows;

"After the appeal was preferred in the City Hall Court( you can’t file an appeal in a building, there must be a court), the controlling group of the old theater was informed that the demolition process is stayed until the investigation is over. This stay order would certainly affect the personal interests of the group leader and his right hand. Since they knew that the faster this matter was carried out, the better it would be to avoid awakening the public interest in this murky matter."

Topic: Do You Know about Lunar Eclipse?#56
Posted: Friday, July 27, 2018 12:20:44 PM
It's going to be Lunar eclipse tonight, starting after about two hrs and four mins from now. The eclipsed moon will be visible in many countries of the world. The moon shines with rays of Sun. It has no source of light of its own. When the Sun, Earth and the Moon while moving on their respective fixed paths, come in a straight line, with earth in the middle, Sun rays get obliterated by earth from reaching the moon as a result that part of the moon looks dark, which is called 'eclipsed moon'. In some parts of the world, it is fully obliterated where it is fully dark for a certain period of time i.e.till the straight line position gets over.





This video explains all.

Topic: Do You Know about General Knowledge?#55

I wonder, how general is General Knowledge

“Knowledge is power. Power to do evil...or power to do good. Power itself is not evil. So knowledge itself is not evil.”
― Veronica Roth, Allegiant




I feel that general knowledge is not so general.

In my opinion Fruit is a countable noun.

2 kg mangoes, a dozen Bananas, a pack of Kiwi Fruit etc.
