I got 9 correct out of 10 questions/ How about the sexual organs? Are they less important? )

Profile photo of Valery teacher Valery teacher

    You can live without it, but – is it life?

    Profile photo of Volodymyr Volodymyr

    Hi Valery,

    As Volodymyr mentioned, the sexual organs are not vital, meaning you can live without them. So, though not less important, they would be subject of a different video.

That’s good lesson. I think using illustrations can help us to learn quickly and easily.

    Hi Iman,

    That’s probably true, but there are copyright issues to consider. You can do an online search for these. There’s lots out there ;)

      Thank you for your lesson, it really is useful.
      But I have a question, umm… why do our bodies have such parts? And each part has a defect or not.
      I will support you forever, Adam. Thank you if you answer my question.

I believe that “exhale” could be the correct answer in the question 6 as well.

Profile photo of Marcio07 Marcio07

    Yes, I think the same

    Profile photo of Camilo Martinez Camilo Martinez

    Exalar (em português) é passivo (deixa sair)[como o perfume, uma fragrância]
    Expelir é ativo (botar para fora) [como um cálculo, urina, fezes etc.]

    Profile photo of RubensGD RubensGD

    Yes, I think so.

    Profile photo of Momo-www Momo-www

    Hi Marcio,

    That’;s a good point, though the lungs expel (get rid of). Generally we exhale from the mouth. The action involves more than just the lungs. Does this help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      We can say that “oxygen is inspired and carbon dioxide is expired by the lungs”, can’t we?

Hello Adam~
I can not understand Whythe answer is *expel*, not *exhale*? Could you explain his? Thank you so much.

    Hi Carol,

    Good question. The lungs expel (get rid of). Generally we exhale from the mouth. The action involves more than just the lungs. Does this help?

Thanks, Adam.
I would like to ask “the popularity of social networks across/in/among all age groups is rising.” Which preposition should we use in this sentence?

Profile photo of Sophie Sophie

    Hi, I would also like to ask in the following sentence ‘The government’s own Central Pollution Control Board lists 15 substances in fireworks which it says are “hazardous and toxic”.’ Why do we need to use it after which? Can we omit ‘it’? Then ‘which’ represents what and ‘it’ represents what? When do we need to use ‘it’ after ‘which’?

    Profile photo of Sophie Sophie

      ‘which’ goes with fireworks, which of course can’t say anything. ‘it’ is the Board. Technically. which should be that ;)

      Can’t take ‘it’ out. Can rewrite like this:
      The government’s own Central Pollution Control Board lists 15 substances in fireworks that are “hazardous and toxic”. (the ‘it says’ is redundant).

      Profile photo of Adam Adam

    Hi Sophie,

    I would use across, but like this:
    The popularity of social networks is rising across all age groups. (among can also be used, but across suggests a spectrum).

    Hope this helps.

Adam i have question, if i don’t know word where can i translate this word for georgian? i seen your youtub videos and i don’t use google translate and when i went oxforddictionary there is only english translate and i want to transalte for my tongue and can you help me?

Profile photo of GiorgiKacho GiorgiKacho

    Hmm. Two good alternatives we know of, DeepL and Bing Translate, don’t have Georgian. Have you tried translate.ge?

    Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

    Hi GiorgiKacho,

    I’m afraid I don’t know where to find Georgian, but the moderator’s suggestion might help.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

I know it has nothing to do with my body & organs, but could anyone please explain to me which of the following alternatives is (or are) correct: (1) a few hour instruction, (2) a few-hour instruction, (3) a few hours instruction or (4) a few hours’ instruction?

When I was writing a text a few days ago, I decided to go for the last option — though it was not any decision in the truest sense of the word but the very first and natural choice of mine which I had not pondered over for hours before making it… I just made it. Now, however, as I am proofreading the text, some doubts have arisen.

Options (1) and (3) are clearly wrong because of the lack of punctuation marks – the hyphen and the apostrophe, respectively. But what about the other two options? I read a post on the Internet (though the website was not a one I would call “a reliable source”) that “a few hours’ instruction” is an archaic and “more dramatic” (whatever it means) expression, and that the author of the post would basically never use it personally. But why? Whereas “a few hours’ instruction” has around 15,000 Google hits, “a few-hour instruction” has none…

Also, should I use the article “a” before “few hours’ instruction? Here (https://ell.stackexchange.com/questions/5577/should-you-say-hour-or-hours-in-this-type-of-sentence) one person says I should not.

Profile photo of ernest ernest

    And one more thing: what about “a few(-)hours(-)LONG instruction”?

    Profile photo of ernest ernest

    “A few hours’ instruction” may sound a bit more formal or old-fashioned in some situations, but it is correct. You can easily find similar examples, like “a few minutes’ work” or “a few hours’ drive” (though most people, even native speakers, get the punctuation wrong). A more natural way to say it might be “a few hours of instruction”.

    I’m not exactly sure why, but you generally only see compound adjectives like this with exact numbers (“a two-hour wait”, “two hours’ wait”), and not with words like “few” or “many”.

    Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

      OK, so, generally, the possessive form is a bit more old-fashioned (and perhaps more British than American) but both are perfectly correct.

      Here: http://random-idea-english.blogspot.com/2014/01/a-ten-minute-walk-ten-minutes-walk.html, this is all well explained and exemplified, too.

      One should just pay attention to their punctuation and remember that before the possessive form there are no articles — it’s a two-hour instruction, but: it’s _ two hours’ instruction.

      Thanks, endVid

      Profile photo of ernest ernest

    Hi Ernest,

    The moderator gave a good answer (a few hours’ instruction).

    When in doubt, change the structure:

    After receiving instructions for just a few hours, …

Hi Engvid Team,
could you please explain the difference between the word of ‘Expel’ and ‘Exhale’?

Profile photo of daahirjaalle daahirjaalle

    Expel means “to push out”, not just physically. For example: “squids swim by expelling water behind them”, or “I was expelled from school because I got in a fight”.

    Exhale has a more specific meaning; it means “to breathe out”.
