I am just practising some English grammar related questions, here is the question I am confused about : question: Identify the one bold word or phrase that must be changed in order for the sentence to be correct.
1) In supply-side economics, a balanced budget results from reducing in government spending.
C. reducing in
Its correct answer is D. spending. But why should we select "spending" as wrong word that must be changed in order for the sentence to be correct. what's the logic or rule behind it?
2) Alligators are not long on the endangered list.
B. not long
D. the endangered
Its correct answer is B. not long. Why?
