I think Ashley is going to travel to the top of Snowden by train so it's very probably she will arrive sooner than Stephen.

She is going to travel with railway. Also she will get to the top first.

Yes I checked the Getting started page .grammar section and used the online dictionary once. But I didn't search the site to find the answers because I couldn't find the site .I will be grateful to you if you can direct me to find the site Thank you.

Hello kalyani,

Do you mean that you can't find the answer in the exercises? For all of our exercises, first you complete the exercise and then press the Finish button (at the bottom left corner of the exercise). After you press Finish, that button turns into the Check Answers button. If you press it, the correct answers will be displayed.

If I've misunderstood you, please rephrase your question.
