Hello to all,

Thanks for reading my post.


Sample sentence:

A detective is interrogating Tom. Tom tells the detective that six cops wanted to arrest him, but that he managed to shoot all of them and escape.

Question:

I wrote the sample sentence in my other thread. Is the word "that" in bold optional?


Thanks a lot for any comments, corrections or suggestions!

Regards,
JJXR
