What is the meaning of this sentence?

  1. If you are writing a story and character goes out away from a building which has a particular group of people inside, would Germans rather say:

) "Er geht hinaus,"?
) "Er geht heraus,"? Or just
*) "Er geht aus,"?

Which dimension is used?

  1. What is the meaning of this sentence?

"Ob er der Mann ist, der in Berlin sein Studium der Mathematik abschloss,"?

  1. "Er geht hinaus." is correct. "Er geht aus" is used if someone is going to a party, pub, cinema...
  2. Is more or less an open question or an assumption.

  1. Er geht aus. sounds best but I may be wrong.

  2. I think the sentence means: If he is the man who finished his studies of Math in Berlin.


1) Sounds best but is false. This means something along the lines of "I'm going out to dinner"

2) just begin with "I wonder..." and your sentence would be complete.

thanks :-)


it means "Whether he is the man who completed his studies of mathematics in Berlin"?


And it could also be translated as "Might he be the man who..."
