We use you to talk about people in general including the speaker and the hearer:

You can buy this book anywhere > This book is on sale everywhere.
You can’t park here > Parking is not allowed here.
They don’t let you smoke in here > No smoking here

We use they or them to talk about people in general:

They serve good food here.
Ask them for a cheaper ticket.

… especially about the government and the authorities:

They don’t let you smoke in here.
They are going to increase taxes.
They are building a new motorway.
They say it’s going to rain tomorrow.



I have a doubt:
Is it correct for me to use:

How can you get from London to Oxford? or
How do you get.....
How does one get...

Hello Manoharan,

I'd say the middle option ('How do you get') is the most common, but the other two also work. 'can' is a little unusual in this kind of question, but it's not incorrect. 'one' is a little unusual in informal situations, but is also correct.

I can't it was difficult I have got Total score is 0 out of 6 (0%)

What would be the correct syntax?
1. We are all...
2. We all are ...

What is the rule governing the choice?

Thanks & regards.

Hi Adya's,

Both of these are correct. The choice is really a rhetorical one - the second sounds a little more formal and perhaps emphatic to me.

Dear all,

Could you give me a hand here, please?
