Review: Sentence Usage, Answer 1.1
Ce contenu est offert en anglais seulement.
- Albert Einstein’s famous quotation "God does not play dice" was his reaction to the theory that the universe is essentially the outcome of random events.
- The answer effective sentence is not correct.
Einstein’s quotation is very effective and deserves a position of emphasis in the sentence. Consider how much more effective the sentence becomes when the quotation is moved to the end:
Quantum physicists argued that the universe is essentially the outcome of random events, but Albert Einstein replied that "God does not play dice."
Moving the quotation to the end makes this a periodic sentence, with the quotation as its climax.
