well here Potential answers All right well first we've got

00:22

to say no to choi city Did you take a

00:24

good look at this sentence The heat city had the

00:27

characteristics capitalized that my parents were looking for And i

00:32

told them that each one would be a good place

00:34

for us to live We can't in good conscience leave

00:37

it like this Also going to get rid of a

00:39

it's A bad idea for mary to change each one

00:42

to both of them Right by Well for one sense

00:46

begins by using each to refer to the city's individually

00:50

So to avoid confusion it's best to keep referring to

00:52

them in the same way Also if we replaced the

00:56

singular each one with the plural both of them we

01:01

then have to change The singular would be a good

comma and a conjunction And if we change the common

to a semicolon the conjunction and would no longer be

01:30

needed And we really want to rob a poor conjunction

01:33

of its sole purpose in life Really come on people

01:35

It's not nice The correct answer is b the problem

01:39

is that characteristics is capitalized for no good reason Like

01:43

usually we only capitalized Proper announce like mary corpus christi

01:47

kanye west Yeah well not sure how proper connie is

01:50

but you get the idea anyway In this case characteristics

01:54

is just a regular now so we need to uncap

01:57

it Elisa de capitalize er whatever you do that it's

02:01

just hit that sea with the shrink ray wear we 00:02:05.04 --> [endTime] go
