______ 5 months for the fridge to be delivered, I decide to cancel the order.
Knowledge of reducing clauses
The sentence above is a shortened case of a common subject clause.
– If two actions in two clauses occur at the same time or are conjugated together, we omit the subject in one clause and then conjugate the verb in that clause in the V-ing form.
– If two actions in two clauses happen in the order of first and last, we omit the subject of the clause to have the action happen first and then conjugate the verb in that clause in the form Having + P2. So we keep two answers A and C.
Here we have two actions, “wait” and “decide”. It is easy to see in the sentence above that the action “wait” is the action that happens first and “decide” is the action that happens after → the correct answer is C.
It took 5 months for the refrigerator to arrive, so I decided to cancel the order.
It’s been a long five months waiting for the fridge to be delivered, and I’ve finally had enough. After countless emails, phone calls, and promises from the store, I’ve decided to cancel the order.
When I first placed the order, I was told the fridge would arrive in a few weeks. But weeks turned into months, and I was still waiting. I kept checking in with the store, and they kept telling me they were working on it. But nothing ever happened.
Finally, after five months of waiting, I decided to cancel the order. I was tired of the empty promises and the lack of communication. I wanted to move on and find a better solution.
After canceling the order, I was able to find a better option. I found a store with better customer service and a faster delivery process. I was able to get the fridge I wanted, and it arrived in just a few days.
The experience of waiting five months for the fridge to be delivered was a frustrating one. I was angry and disappointed with the store’s lack of communication and customer service. I was relieved to finally cancel the order and find a better solution.
If you ever find yourself in a similar situation, don’t be afraid to cancel the order. There are plenty of other options out there, and it’s better to move on and find something that works for you.
