Pronouns are words we use in the place of a full noun.

There are many different kinds of pronouns.



I want to know the difference between seem and seem to be . I'm confused
I read a sentence in practical English usage saying ( he seem older than he is and it also said that it would be wrong if u used here (seem to be) because it would suggest that he is really older than he is) but I read on Cambridge saying ( he is 16, bet he seems (to be) younger than he is ) which is right and how can I differ between them?

Hello uchiha itache,

Both seem and seem to can be used to describe our impression, which may or may not be correct. For example:

She seems intelligent.

She seems intelligent but she is really quite stupid.

She seems to be intelligent.

She seems to be intelligent but she is really quite stupid.



He seems to be older than he is.

This sentence is not incorrect but it requires a context in which we are still not completely sure about the answer. For example, you might say this if a person claims to be 18 but you find some information which suggests that he is really 23. By using seems to be you show that you are still not 100% certain of the truth. By contrast, if you are completely certain of the person's age then you would say use be:

He is older than he seems.

He is older than he claims.

He is older than he says

Do we say ( I miss you ) or ( I missed you ) ?!
And if both are right, please tell me everything they could mean

Hello uchiha itache,

Both are possible. 'Miss' is a present form and we would use it if we are still missing the person. 'Missed' is a past form and we would use it if the missing was true in the past but is not true now (perhaps because the person we missed has returned).

What kind of verb we usually should take after "who"?
Is there any certain dictation?

Hi Md.Habibullah,

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any restrictions on the kind of verb that can follow 'who'. Did you have something specific in mind?

Hi Kirk and Habibullah,
Should it be not? "He is among the few who wants to continue working on the project."
