hear the potential answer All right there There there he's

00:26

Okay well the only thing that can fill the hole

00:28

in this sentence is life is the correct thrown out

00:30

If only it were that easy for everybody Well we'll

00:33

begin by eliminating option d Why would he break the

00:37

speed limit if they go faster Are he and they

00:41

in some kind of fast and the furious type situation

00:44

Well that's open on the final three choices bring us

00:47

to the age old question of there there and there

00:49

since the last half of the sentence uses they The

00:52

subject of the sentence also needs to be some form

00:55

of day but which form should it be the question

00:58

they've been asking for centuries Thinking about this let's us

01:03

nick's choice eh This there isn't a form of they

01:07

at all may sound exactly like the other two but

01:10

this there is usually used to refer to a place

01:14

not people are things we can use It is a

01:16

pronoun by saying something like there are motion should be

of these uses help us with this particular center So

01:32

let's move on choice bees version of there is a

01:35

form of they but it's not the form we need

01:38

We used t h e i r when we want

01:40

to make they possessive For example we could say their

01:43

food taste like old socks In this case we're showing

01:46

that they are the ones who own food a fact

01:49

in which the health inspector might be interested If we

01:52

put the possessive there in the sense in question it

01:55

wouldn't work It would mean that they somehow home going

02:00

which doesn't make any sense at all Option c is

02:03

the only one that works This version of there is

02:06

a contraction for they are with the apostrophe standing in

02:10

for the uh in our you know because saying they 00:02:13.9 --> [endTime] are way too exhausting What
