Hi

Still with some problems using the time conjuntion until. Which of these two senteces make sense to you?

1) There will be demonstrations until the president revokes some of the recently implemented cost-cut policies.
2) There will be demonstrations until the president doesn't revoke some of the recently implemented cost-cut policies.

I think Nº1 is correct: something happens up to the time when something happens; and for the same reason, something can't go on up to the time when something doesn't happen (doesn't make sense to me), which is why I think Nº2 is incorrect... Could you confirm this? Thanks

Gonzalo
