Here's the sentence: "The most interesting trip had to be our year nine graduation trip". It was an answer to the question "What was the most interesting trip?"

If it is correct, how can I prove that it is? If not, how can this sentence be corrected?

  • What do you think might be wrong with it? – AndyT Oct 15 '15 at 13:36
  • Not sure, my english teacher said it was wrong but didn't really explain why. – Rori Oct 15 '15 at 13:42
  • Well, I can't find anything wrong with it. It reads perfectly fine to me. So either a) your teacher is wrong, or b) you haven't repeated everything word-for-word. – AndyT Oct 15 '15 at 14:07
  • I have repeated everything word-for-word. My teacher is russian and believes that a student can't know better than her, so that's a problem. Still, I'll try to explain this to her. Thank you for your help! :) – Rori Oct 15 '15 at 14:23

Well yes, it is a grammatically correct answer that makes sense. The response is in line with the question. The question asks for a statement as to what the most interesting trip was; the answer states that 'it had to be our year nine graduation trip'.

It checks out fine
