what is the grammatical structure of, he used to have a lot of girlfrinds ut now he has none
Hi. I'm stuck with an grammatical structure question. The question is, He used to have a lot of girlfriends but now he has none. I need to know what is the grammatical structure of this question. can you help? Thanks. Josh.
Each of these sentences has two principal clauses, linked by the conjunction, or implied conjunction "but". "Now" is a transitional preposition of time indicating a shift in tense.
The "but" divides the clauses into past perfect - in other words, what once was, but is no longer - and the present, where he finds himself today, without a girlfriend!
