If it were two hours later it would be half as long until midnight as it would be if it were an hour later. What time is it?

Monday, December 19th 2011

1st tx;
1 ? Ive got plz:Do always we use plural verb 4
” news “?!
4instance:News r showed.
Am I right?!!

Tuesday, December 20th 2011

    4give me,I was totally wrong,,
    I mean singular verbs after news not plural ones!!!!!!!
    Do we should singular verb 4 news always???????

    Thursday, December 22nd 2011

      Fatima, let me explain it to you. I know that text is long, but read it, you will learn a lot from it.
      We have countable and uncountable nouns in the grammar. I am sure that you can differenciate count nouns such as apple, banana, ball, glass etc. from non-count nouns such as sugar, coffee, flour, milk and so on. You must keep in mind that nouns such as information, news, music, progress, luggage, business, furniture, advice, knowledge don’t have plural, therefore here is your answer that you have been looking for. You always use them in singular. E.g. What time is news on television? The same thing with information, you cannot say I gave you a information, but you can say I gave you some information.
      Ok, now when you know the difference, let me add something more in order to teach not only you, but everyone who reads this text.
      Nouns that have irregular plural are: Foot-feet, man-men, woman, women, child-children, mouse-mice, tooth-teeth, goose-geese and so forth.
      The following nouns have the same form in singular and plural: Sheep-sheep, means-means, species-species, deer-deer, fish-fish, series-series, and so on.
      Compound nouns form their plural by adding S to the principal word: Sister-in-law-sisters-in-law, writing-table, writing-tables etc.
      Sometimes we use a plural noun for one thing that has two parts. For example: Trousers, pyjamas, glasses, binoculars, scissors. E.g. Those are nice jeans, or that is a nice pair of jeans.
      I’m glad I had an opportunity to explain this to you, so read and learn, it’s not as difficult as it seems to be. Take care :)

      Friday, December 23rd 2011

        I see that I’ve omitted one letter. I’ve meant an information and not a information, however both are wrong :D

        Friday, December 23rd 2011

          Hi,
          How can I thank u Merlin!!
          Hope all is well with u.
          ” The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything “!

Tuesday, December 20th 2011

John, tell me what is the correct way to ask someone for permission? Would you mind if I open the window, or would you mind if I opened the window? Respond ASAP.

Tuesday, December 20th 2011

    “would you mind if I opened the window?” is the correct form. Also, you can say: “Would you mind opening the window?”.

    Monday, March 5th 2012

      Carlos, can you explain it will? cause opened is past tense and would you mind if i opened the window is not done yet…
