I'm having a problem with this error identification test. The question goes...
The cost of living has skyrocketed, unemployment has gone up, going to college doesn't guarantee you can get a good job, and many young people are underachievers who loaf around the house until well passing their college years.
- Going to college
- Loaf around
- Well passing
I am rather confident that the answer is 4. Well passing, but I'm having a hard time finding a reasonable explanation and coming up with how 'well passing' should be changed to make this sentence grammatically correct.
I thought about changing it into its present form, which is 'well pass'. Though I am not sure if that works. It sounds kinda odd to me.
