  1. karthik

    the Bali meeting = why not meeting instead of meet mam? plz

    1. Srishti

      meet(n) = gathering
      meeting also means the same. But ‘meet’ is apt.

  2. kautilya_victory

    Ma’m , I have following queries…

    1) in que 4 , why silent can not be used in place of silence?

    2) in que 4, why ‘ features of OnePlus ‘ can not be used in place of ‘ features on Oneplus?

    3) in que 8, why not its in place of their? OnePlus is non-living entity

    4) in que 9, can we use ‘ also ‘ in the statement containing ‘ although ‘ ?

    1. Srishti

      1. silence = Noun; silent = adjective
      2. “on” used to show that somebody belongs to sth
      3. Rule of collective noun. Strategical team don’t work in monopoly. Everyone can have a different strategy.
      4. what you can use that is up to you.
