Thanks for the class, Alex. I didn’t anticipate you knew Kiki, in 魔女の宅急便 :), I have another question, under and below. I hear both in the song Octopus’s Garden by the Beatles (sung by Ringo). “We would be warm below the storm / In our little hideaway beneath the waves.” The song starts with “I’d like to be under the sea.” What are the differences among them?

Hi Alex,

Hope you are doing well.
Thanks for the wonderful class.
One of the questions from the quiz. Which I did not understand. The question is
She scored ______50% on her final exam. In my opinion it should be ‘Under’ because you have told in the video that under is synonym for less than.
Kindly explain the question.

Profile photo of Manwit77 Manwit77

    It’s a numerical measurement, so it should be below, but if you say “under” in casual conversation, literally no one will notice. :p

Thank you Alex it is a nice class!

    You’re welcome. I’m glad you liked it.

I think #3 is ambiguous. The answer can be “under”.
Here’s examples from Google Books:
“Sixty-five percent of participants scored under 50%.” “Over a third of local NHS organisations scored under 50%.”
You probably meant “She scored _____ average on her final exam.”

Profile photo of Donny D. Donny D.

    I see what you’re saying and I agree that it’s an either/or scenario. Most people won’t care whether you use under or below in this scenario.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Hi Alex! Thanks for the good lesson!

Is it possible to use “underneath” instead of below and under?

Profile photo of glavrd glavrd

when t can use the word “beneath”

Thank Alex, good class. My score was BELOW 70%, I’m UNDER my goal score. I need study more…

Profile photo of Wesley Ponte Wesley Ponte

    “I need to study more.”

    Honestly, in casual conversation, no one will notice this mistake, so worry about it on this test, but don’t worry about it as much in everyday situations.

Thanks teacher….!!

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

for “She scored __________ 50% on her final exam.”
we use below instead of under, I observe when we talk about scores, we use below, is it correct?

Profile photo of FcoJavier99 FcoJavier99

    You got it. :) It’s a numerical value/measurement. However, if you use “under” in conversation, it’s not a critical error.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Definitely my score wasn’t below average.I got 100! thank god or even better thank YOU teacher Alex!,however,I’ll keep practicing to make sure I really got it!

Hi Alex, tx for the lesson.
I suppose under, in the meaning of covered, can also be used when a situation is ‘under’ control, correct?
bye

Profile photo of Dudurito Dudurito

    You got it. There are plenty of “under” expressions.

    Under arrest
    Under control
    Under siege
    Under the impression

    And more.

Thank you so much Alex. It is a very useful clarification.

Profile photo of dovgyj dovgyj

    Thanks! I’m glad it had some benefit. :)

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

I’m wondering why it is “She scored below 50% on her final exam” if it means “She scored LESS THAN 50% on her final exam”. It should be UNDER, shouldn’t it?

Profile photo of samuel.martins samuel.martins

    because 50% is a measurment and not an enumeration.
