Question 20: Solve the question and then select your answer below.
Here is how we solved Question 20:
The Answers have then and than and different variations of year. Underline the distinctive terms. Key Info: Many people confuse then and than. Then is related to time, and than is used for comparison. We are looking for the correct use of then/than and year. Then means at that time, after that, or afterward.
Answer F – No change. ELIMINATE F because then is the wrong word. It should be than. Using this criteria, you can also ELIMINATE Answer J.
Answer G KEEP G because than is the proper word and year’s is singular Possessive.
Answer H ELIMINATE H because years’ is plural Possessive, indicating more than one year.
Answer J We already Eliminated this with choice A because then is the wrong word.
The Correct Answer is
In Answer G, The use of “a” in front of year’s indicates we are looking for a single year. Year’s is singular and possessive. The year has worth.
In Answer H, Years’ is plural and possessive. However we need singular because of the “a” for the number to be the SAME.
