  • Do you have to say the time when using Simple Past?

    For example: "I built a house for my cat." I read in a grammar book that the different between present perfect and the simple past is that the simple past states time ( I walked to school yesterday). Is it correct?

  • Please help ....What is meant by 'wins' here in this context? Thanks?

    Best answer: It means successful outcomes. The sentence as a whole is very badly written though. It's so jargonised it's practically gobbledygook.

    Best answer: It means successful outcomes. The sentence as a whole is very badly written though. It's so jargonised it's practically gobbledygook.

    I think it means:
    "The operations and commercial teams, working in collaboration, are making excellent progress in advancing the business. They are trying to achieve successful integrated solutions."

    (What the problems are that require a single integrated solution would need to be have previously defined, or this still doesn't make sense.)

    It might mean:
    "The operations and commercial teams are making excellent progress in moving towards closer collaboration, with the aim of jointly advancing the business. They are working to integrate operations between the two teams for successful business outcomes."

    (In that case it's repetitive.)

    Basically either:
    "Our operations and commercial teams are working together to try to get good outcomes" or, "Our operations and commercial teams are trying to work together to get good outcomes."

    Whole lot of nothing
