Determine whether the underlined portion of the sentence below is correct or whether it needs to be revised.
Sports are a significant part of life for people all across the world, as was demonstrated in 2006 when billions of people came together to be involved with the World Cup either through playing, watching or thru advertising.

A World Cup either through playing, watching or advertising.

This sentence tests your knowledge of capitalization and awareness of parallelism. The original sentence is incorrect because choice A destroys the parallelism (i.e. thru advertising instead of simply “advertising”) and uses the informal spelling of through (i.e. “thru”). By ending with “for it” the author is also implying that one may “play for it” and “watch for it,” and although one may play for the World Cup through a grammar stretch, one cannot possibly “watch for it” and do the same thing as one who simply “watches it.” Choice World Cup either through playing, watching or advertising uses the appropriate capitalization (because the World Cup is a major sports event it is a proper noun that must be capitalized) and maintains strict parallelism in the concluding list of ways to be involved.

Ive had this app for a while now and I seem to be having trouble loading the English section. When I click on “Reading” on the home page, it just takes me to a white screen where nothing loads (except the ads, of course). Please fix. I’d like to continue studying. And now the actual practice teas test won’t work. It won’t let me change the number of test questions from 0. So I literally can’t even see any questions. Please please update. There was an update but to my surprise, these two problems I’m having are still a problem. The reading section is still not loading and the Teas questions are still at 0 and cannot be changed so how am I actually supposed to be able to practice for my teas test next month if your app isn’t working properly
