Hi Fellows,

I compiled FLASHCARDS from Papgust's topic post and I posted in separate Topic so visitors can easily access it.

Here is the link:

It is in PDF format so will help you to print like flashcards.

Regards,
Saleem

You sure "That" can be used to modify people?

papgust wrote:
Relative Pronouns:

"That"
1. Introduce ESSENTIAL modifiers.
2. Modify either people OR things.

Usage of "COULD":

"Could" is a modal expressing past (potential) ability.

If something is assumed in the PAST, then the usage of "Could" is appropriate. In other words, it is used to refer to the "Future in the PAST".

If it is "ongoing", then "Could" CANNOT be used.
I didn't understand this: could you, please, make some example?

--[ IMPORTANT ]--

LIKE / AS RULE:

You make comparisons with LIKE when you compare nouns, or noun phrases (i.e., anything that doesn't have a VERB).
EXCEPTION:
Prepositional phrases take "As".
Note that there may be modifiers attached to these nouns. If there are, don't care. Modifiers are disposable.

...

"Our family lives on a farm now, as in the 19th century." -- CORRECT! Prepositional phrases take "as"
since that I don't know what a prepositional phrase is, could you, please, explain me it making me some other example?
thx

"twice as many as":

"..., twice as many as ..." is an APPOSITIVE modifier. Appositives must modify some noun that comes immediately before the comma.

NOTE:
If you have an appositive modifier as an ABSTRACT NOUN - such as "strategy", "figure", "statistic", "findings", "situation", "change", "difference" etc. - then such an appositive may be allowed to describe the entire situation described in the preceding clause
Could you, please, make some example of the note?
thx

Relative Pronouns:

Modifying phrases are often introduced by relative pronouns such as "which", "that", "where", "who", "whom", "whose".

"Which"
1. Introduce NON-ESSENTIAL modifiers.
2. Introduce phrases that modify things.

"That"
1. Introduce ESSENTIAL modifiers.
2. Modify either people OR things.

"Who"
1. Introduce either ESSENTIAL or NON-ESSENTIAL modifiers.
2. Modify a person or a group of people.
could you, please, give me some example? because I don't understand what ESSENTIAL mean

Hello folks,

I'm not sure whether you guys are following the thread as there is no response or no interest shown by you.

Please let me know if i need to continue posting. Otherwise, i'll stop right here. It's a sheer waste of time if no one is getting benefited.
Just joined forum. Finding your tips very helpful. Thanks for posting.

HI Papgust..... Thanks a lot for sharing such a useful information... as you said SC was just natural to you... the opposite is true with me.My SC is the weakest link... Althoug I just started preparing for GMAT and have a period of 3-4 months b4 the exam. I will go through each page of ur SC Tips... then would sove as many as possible SC question for 2-3 weeks. I just hope this will help me.

Any Suggestion :: My actual problem is my concentration, I dont like SC, so I loose my concentration and had to read the sentence twice or even thrice to under stand the meaning.and this is what I need to overcome..... MY idea as of now is to read as many concepts possible... solve as many SC possbile... and one week SC will be my favorite game!
