He has solution to all the problems in the world.
He has solution for all the problems of the world.
Sir, both the sentences are correct. I have seen both the sentences in the newspaper. I am confused a bit. how are both the sentences correct ? Please explain a little bit.

Hello Rahul,

Neither of these sentences are correct. The correct versions would be:

He has a/the solution to all the problems in the world.

He has a/the solution for all the problems of the world.

Both 'in' and 'of' are possible and the meaning is very similar. It is not unusual for different words to be possible in the same sentence.

Thank you sir.

Hi~ how's going?

I wonder about the "otherwise" meaning in this sentence. "but, are you getting on with him Ok, otherwise?"

I looked it up on a dictionary. and It has lots of meaings... So It's not clear for me....

Thank you in advance for your kind reply.

Hello zmsrlf,

Here, 'otherwise' is an adverb and means 'except for what has just been referred to'. Harry has just complained about working with Johnny, and Olivia asks him if they are getting along except for the problems Harry just mentioned.

Dear LearnEnglish Team,
I confuse with the sentence "how far I’d be free to follow my own projects as part of the job". Does it mean how long do i need to wait the result. Can you explain me please?


No, the meaning is rather different. The sentence means something like 'how much I would be able to decide what I do'.
