Wooooo we're getting longer sentences now!


Mine was fully answered when it came up wtf lol


Wrong because I Typed an i For an o. In not on.


the word plate is used twice in this sentence but is eclipsed only the first time the word is used, even though 'an' is in front of both...why is this?


The first time, it follows the preposition ar and is therefore eclipsed. The second time, it is not part of a prepositional phrase, and there is nothing that would cause it to eclipse.
