Helen has real perseverance; she won't give up on getting that new job.
Is it better to omit "on" in the underlined part or to keep it? And why? Thanks.
It's tricky but I think I get it now. To make sure I use it right, I'll make a few examples of my own:
I won't give up on mastering English, though it's extremely hard.
It's the most miserable thing to give up on one's hope.
Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks.
QD Try a similar sentence this way, not using on. Instead use the words that on replaces. "Helen is saving $1,000 a month to keep alive her hope to buy a new home."
If you had used on, "Helen is saving $1,000 a month on her hope to buy a new home.
