Hi Optimus , Is it always required THAT after convinced? If no, then please explain when it it required? Also please explain why we do not need to use fact in this sentence? Please explain.

Many thanks in advance Kavin Hi Kavin "the growing numbers" are already a fact - which, by inserting "the fact" separately, makes a redundancy-error. In regards to the "that" I will wait for Optimus' reply.

If no, then please explain when it it required? Not always. If we have CONVINCED + CLAUSE, we need "that." For example: Mike is convinced that the Warriors will win the title. (The clause is in red.) However, if there is no clause following "convinced", "that" would not be required. For example: The prosecuting attorney convinced the jury of the defendant's guilt. _________________ Veritas Prep | GMAT Instructor Veritas Prep Reviews Save$100 off any live Veritas Prep GMAT Course
