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 it 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.

I recommend this app 100%


3 years ago

Used this app for 2 weeks to study. I took the teas 11/23/20. It did have one question on my exam about the vas deferens and vasectomies on this app which was nice, but other than that not very similar. The teas exam format is much more complex and requires more critical thinking than this app. After completing all the questions on the app you can take practice exams. My results on all 6 or 7 exams (170 questions each) were 89-94%. I have a 4.0 science pre req, 3.6 overall, and bachelors degree. I received a 70% on the teas after using this app as my primary study source. This app just won’t prepare you for the caliber of questions you’ll face on the real exam. Overall a good source of material and will help for studying, but don’t rely on this app too heavily.

I just took my exam and earned a 88.7%. This app has helped me practice and apply the knowledge I’ve learned while studying for the TEAS. I like how the app is formatted and it feels like a game rather than studying which helped motivate me and I enjoyed it. I don’t usually write reviews, but I think this app deserves it. Although I wasn’t able to save some of the questions using the “favorites” option, it didn’t bother me too much and I learned a lot from the app anyway. If you’re gonna take or retake the TEAS, I absolutely recommend this app. Don’t rely solely on it though, atleast find another study material to go through and use the app just for that extra practice (atleast that’s what worked for me). I hope this helped someone today and good luck btw!
