What's the error in the following csentence ?
The whole India (A) mourned the sad and sudden (b) demise of Mahatma Gandhi. (C) No error. (D)
Someone told me that part A is wrong, in his opinion the correct form is The whole of India He told that the general structure is
The whole + common noun
The whole of + proper noun
since India is proper noun so of will come here. Is it true ?
