Hello Beeeneees,

Please check, are these sentences right?

1.The best solution to reduce aging is to have a walk.

2.We were given a vocabulary test but today we are being given a grammar test,our teacher is always moving the goalposts.

3.we say,I believe in God, I believe you.

why do we use ''in '' here and why not use there?

4.It doesn't look so beautiful in your hand as in my hand

thanks

Hello Kanta,

I'm glad to see that you are starting a new thread for a new set of questions. Perhaps next time you will also follow my other advice and not direct a question to one particular moderator.

1. The best way to reduce ageing is to walk. ('Solution' is not right as it needs to be a solution to ageing, not a solution to reducing ageing)
2. We are usually given a vocabulary test, but today we are being given a grammar test instead. Our teacher is always moving the goalposts.
3. We say, "I believe in God," so I believe you. (I don't understand the context of this sentence.)
4. It doesn't look as beautiful in your hand as it does in my hand.

Why do we use 'in' where?

Thanks Beeesneees. and I didn't understand your second sentence,this one

( Perhaps next time you will also follow my other advice and not direct a question to one particular moderator)

and my question was,why we sometimes use ''in'' after believe.

like , I believe you/ I believe in God.

and when we compare in negative question we use ''so''.

like,it isn't so beautiful as mine.

And Beeesneees I asked you how do you find my english,means Can I write well?

You will possibly get a faster answer if you say 'Hello everyone' or 'Hello moderators' instead of 'Hello Beeesneees'.

If you believe in something you believe that it is true or that it exists/ will do what it is set to do.
If you believe someone you accept that what they are saying is the truth.

That is not correct.
In comparisons we use 'as'
It isn't as beautiful as mine.

You write English well enough to be understood but not yet well enough to consider undertaking formal examinations.

'Come back soon' means 'don't be long.'
'Come sooner' means 'try to come earlier'.

How are these questions related to the earlier ones?
