below if it all that people who are and here

00:23

the potential answers suspense killing me We're big on saving

00:27

energy around here In fact as soon as we're done

00:29

with this video we're going to take a nice long

00:31

nap You're welcome earth let's Check out the sentence That's

00:34

going to be a thorn in our side this time

00:36

people can say farm or energy by employing night sky

00:39

friendly principles and by the people who are using a

00:42

more efficient lightbulb At first read this sentence feels more

00:46

awkward than a handful of gelatin Seriously why didn't we

00:49

put this stuff in the bowl Okay but why does

00:52

the sentence feel awkward Well we're dealing with a comparative

00:55

phrase here In other words we're talking about two ways

00:57

people can save energy both of which start with the

01:00

word by in this sentence On one hand we've got

01:03

employing Night sky friendly principles And on the other hand

01:07

we've got the people who are using a more efficient

01:10

lightbulb Wait what the first is a method of reducing

01:14

energy while the second refers to the people who are

01:16

using an alternate method There's no alignment there So our

01:20

comparison is kaput within crash days tomorrow What about be

01:24

others who are others People Same thing we need a

01:28

more balanced seesaw to make this sentence work So sorry

01:31

yonkers We're gonna have to ask that you run along

01:34

and play with your little piggy path Option c suggests

01:37

the energy saved hoof We suggest you don't even read

01:40

aloud the sentence created by inserting that phrase your brain

01:44

might start hemorrhaging it's still not another method of saving

01:47

energy So the search continues well as it turns out

01:50

it's best just to delete the underlying portion entirely without

01:54

it we've got people khun say farm or energy by

01:56

employing night sky friendly principles then by using a more

01:59

if efficient lightbulb Using a more efficient lightbulb is a

02:03

method of saving energy so it completes our seesaw and

02:05

gives us a comparative phrase that's in perfect working order

02:08

d is the one we want okay naptime And to

02:11

save a bit more energy we're not even going to

02:13

make a joke in this video In fact we're not 00:02:15.998 --> [endTime] even going to say goodbye Oh
