I would like to know the meaning of the sentence which is underlined here in the image. The image reads as follows:
·············The text in the image begins here···········
Would rather means 'prefer' or 'would prefer'.
• I'd rather walk than wait for a bus.
• Karen would rather we kept together. (I'm asking about this one.)
• Would you rather eat now or later?
It is followed by an infinitive without to (walk) or by a clause (we kept together).
I suspect that this sentence (Karen would rather we kept together.) is rather wrong and doesn't say anything – could be a printing error.
