Think of a number with two digits. For example 43. Follow the Magic Gopher's instructions and he will amaze you by telling you what number you chose.



Hello chechak,

You can find a definition and example of 'may well' in the Cambridge Dictionary Online (see the search box on the lower right side of this page).

By the way, please try to post your questions on pages that are relevant. There's a search box on the right. Even though it isn't answered there, this question, for example, would make much more sense on our may, might, may have and might have page.

Hi, may I know when can I use wind as an uncountable noun and winds as countable. Thanks

Hi Summerlove,

'Wind' as an uncountable noun is used without an article for general meaning ('Wind makes running harder') and is used with the definite article when referring to the weather at a particular time or place, including where the speaker is ('The wind is cold today').

Sometimes a speaker will differentiate in his or her thinking between different kinds of wind - from the east rather than the north, for example, or will be thinking of identifiable wind patterns, such as those over the Atlantic which aid travel in certain directions in certain locations. In these cases the speaker might say 'winds'. 'Winds' may also be used in certain literary contexts in a similar way, and in certain metaphors ('The winds of change').

Best wishes,
