Sami's Beary Fun English Class #1

Post by Sami ϟ on Mon Jul 15, 2013 2:07 am

Today we are going to learn more about grammar. Razz

In a supermarket, should the sign say 10 or less OR 10 or fewer. Post below your answer. I will reveal the answer after 3 people post, and I will  explain the answer. Good luck! :DD Also, you are not allowed to change your answer, only one final answer.

The correct answer was "10 items or fewer"
Congrats to Miranda who got it!
The reason that 10 items or fewer is grammatically correct and 10 items or less is not, is because of a very simple reason.

Less is not supposed to be used in a certain amount of quantity. Since the number is known, it is not grammatically correct. A correct example could be; The correct amount of pills or less should be given to the girl.

Fewer is used when the amount of quantity is known. Since the number is known, it is grammatically correct.
A correct example could be; Three pills or fewer should be given to the girl.

Thanks for playing!(;
