Sentence: "No sensible person will take such a decision on impulse and emotions"
My question: Can we use preposition "on" alone in the sentence or it needs to follow with a noun "basis of", like this: "on the basis of"?
Thanks and regards
Yes, you can, Razer. There is no need for the addition of "the basis of". "basis of" with a 'the' isn't idiomatic.
I think that 'make' would be a more natural choice as the verb in this case.
Ok will make amendments suggested by you. Thanks for the answer.
I made a serious typo, Razer.
"basis of" with a 'the' isn't idiomatic.
That was wrong.
I should have written,
"basis of" without
a 'the' isn't idiomatic.
Ok, it's all right. No problem
