Read the sentence below: Mark Twain's books are definitely in the "must read" category for students. Which revision of this sentence changes the tone to a more formal one? If you haven't read Mark Twain, you haven't studied literature. Mark Twain is awesome, and everyone should read his works. Reading Mark Twain is better than eating gourmet chocolates by a pool. The works of Mark Twain should be required reading for all students.

    It is surely "Reading Mark Twain is better than eating gourmet chocolates by a pool."

    I take that back, sorry, I didn't see the correct one at first and thought it had to be that. The correct one is "Mark Twain is awesome, and everyone should read his works," because the tone sounds like they are talking to a friend or colleague. The one I said before was a close second, but still can be considered somewhat formal.

    it's asking for a formal tone not a friendly one, @Unicorns-Love-Music .

    @night.soul45 Oh, great I feel stupid. I was thinking it meant the sentence that makes the tone the most informal. In that case, The first sentence would be the correct one because it sounds like a more formulated, well-presented opinion than the others.

    i guess i would have to tie it between the first and the last one although i might still lean towards the last one still. i mean i never failed an English test but that does not mean i am always right.

    I do think it is the last one because the first one speaks as if they were talking to someone about Mark Twain and telling them 'they haven't studied literature' is a false statement, because you can study literature without studying Mark Twain, although you may be missing out on a bit by not studying his works.
