Re: Clear your doubts~

here's one i find problems with.. when to use 'who' and 'whom'.
from what i know if the answer to your question is either him or her, then it's whom. if the answer to the question is he or she, then it's who.

Is the above correct?

How to use Who, Whom and Whose.

This site will explain it to you. If you are still confused, do let me know.

Re: Clear your doubts~

Ermm.. "Unless" can be used as Conditional II right?
For example, "The global warming is worsening, unless the scientists were to invent something to mitigate it."

"The global warming crisis is worsening unless scientists are able to create a solution." sounds better. But yes your use of 'unless' is correct.

Re: Clear your doubts~

Hmm. Can 'fusilade' and 'avalanche' used interchangably? (Both mean large amt)

And I don't understand this example sentence provided by Cambridge Dictionary.
Embittered - He died a disillusioned and embittered old man.
Could someone please explain what does this mean? Thanks!

He died a disillusioned and embittered old man. >>> I think it means that when he die, he was a disillusioned and embittered old man.
