Hello vijaymounika,

In this sentence, 'are sold' is a passive verb: 'are' is a form of the verb 'be' and 'sold' is the past participle of 'sell'. In a passive verb, the verb 'be' shows the tense, so in this case it's actually the present simple tense.

hello sir,

what is wrong in :
How to get from London to Oxford.

Hello gurpriya,

It's not a complete sentence because it has no verb, but there is nothing wrong with that phrase in terms of grammar.

By the way, although we try to help our users as much as we can, our main purpose is to help people use our site and to answer questions that are related to it. So while we will answer questions like this one when we can, there are times that we won't be able to.

All the best,

Hello,
what is the differences between "anywhere" and "everywhere" in the following sentences?

You can buy this book anywhere > This book is on sale everywhere.

Are the second and third sentences are grammatically true?

You can buy this book anywhere > This book is on sale anywhere .
You can buy this book everywhere> This book is on sale everywhere.

Thank you.

Hello HojjatRakhshani,

'anywhere' refers to an indefinite place, whereas 'everywhere' refers to all places in a given context. All of the four sentences you ask about are OK, though 'This book is on sale anywhere' is a bit awkward. 'anywhere' is typically used in questions and negative statements, although it is also often used in affirmative statements to indicate that it doesn't matter where you go.

Best wishes,
