Which one of these sentences is grammatically incorrect? a.) I heard one of girls tell her parents about the new substitute social studies teacher. b.) Did you try to stop by and see my roommate and I? c.) My sister couldn't believe how much the movie affected her.
The grammatically incorrect sentence is B. In the infinitive phrase "to stop by and see my roommate and I," the direct objects are "roommate" and "i." However, "I" is a nominative pronoun and should be replaced with the objective pronoun, "me," because it is in an object's position.
Why was Mary Lavin important as a short story writer and novelist in twentieth century Ireland?
While simply being one of the pioneering female Irish writers, Lavin communicated a theme through many of her works, including "The Will," that few other writers sought to touch.

Lavin questions this implicit rule by writing about the will and right of an individual to contest established order in society.
