Would you give me your opinion about this question?   
This is one of English questions in a school. I am not sure what the answer is, so I would like to ask this question to many teachers.
Q: Which underlined one refers to the different thing compared with other 4 underlined ones?

The ( A ) Know-it-alls wondered how things had turned out so differently in (B) their two lands.

(C) Their leaders came forward and asked the Find-it-outs

how each person could be so different but still live a good life.

The Find-it-outs smiled and said,

"Oh! We have a simple way of living and teaching.

If we don t know the answer,

we ask a question and find it."

Now the Know-it-alls realized

that there were a lot more things in the world that (D) they did not know of.

And it helped to ask questions and share knowledge.

Asking questions didn t mean (E) they were foolish or slow to learn ;

it meant they were becoming smarter.

They promised never to build a wall again between the two lands.

Concerning my yesterday ws "jenny in the Provence"   
I noticed with horror some typos or mistakes or whatever you call them. I clearly remember correcting all of them but my computer probably forgot to save them. Haha !!! I am now off for a few days and cannot do anything. However, to those who left me a message, send me a pm with your mail and I will forward you the correct version. Hugs to all of you. I am now baking under the sun before tackling my last end of schoolyear.

Dear Monique,
hope you have some great sunny days. 
I downloaded your ws "Jenny in the Provence". It would be nice if you could send me the ws without "mistakes".
Thanks in advance.
 Greetings from Berlin, hugs Ines

 The mistake in the sentence can be corrected in two different ways, depending on the meaning.
He was in England during the Spring of 2000. He is not in England now.
He has been in England since the spring of 2000. He is still in England.

is not used to knowing or isnot used to know it?   
Hi, I have a doubt about the correct form. Isn t used to knowing or isn t used to know, since know is a verb we use with infintive. thanks

4 May 2016


I m not sure of your context, but I ll see if I can help. 
I m not used to knowing --- "used to" means "accustomed" --- so, also correct would be "I m not accustomed to knowing"

"knowing" here is used as a noun.
I m (I am)  not used to milk for breakfast.  I usually just have coffee.
I m  (I am) not used to dancing before dinner. I usually just watch tv. 
I m  (I am) not used to waking up late.  I usually get up at sunrise. 
I m (I am)  not used to walking to work.  I usually take the bus. 

Im (I am) not used to knowing the answers. I still think I should ask for help!
used to + ____________ (noun, infinitive)
or another way to look at it -- 
used to + _______________ (thing or activity)
"Used to" can also mean something that you did in the past but you no longer do.
I used to live in Shanghai but now I live in Beijing. 
I used to know the people in that building but they dont live there now. 
I used to be young but now I am old. 
I used to run every day but now I work too much overtime.  -------- Things that were normal in the past, but no longer happen.
used to + ____________ (verb)  
Can you see the difference?
Hope this helps.
