Silverturtle AND OTHER WRITING GENIUSES!!
1. It appears that either Jane or Marek will be elected (for president) of student union.
Silverturtle, I know you answered this question before, but I still don't understand what makes this example a transitive verb that must be followed by a direct object, vs this sentence "I don't eat for my sandwich, mow for the lawn, celebrate for their romance, or elect for the president", you can get away with a intervening preposition? But basically WHY IS "FOR PRESIDENT" wrong!?
2. The island of Madagascar is the habitat of more than 200,000 species of plants and animals, (finding many nowhere) else on planet.
Ans: many found nowhere
What's the difference, why is "finding many nowhere" wrong and "many found nowhere" right?
3. Though the island (was formed by) volcanic action (long ago), volcanic activity (still threatens) its inhabitants (occasionally).
Ans: Correct as it is
I actually put C because I thought the present tense "threatens" is wrong because aren't all verbs suppose to be in the same tense, unless stated otherwise?
