Hi everybody. I´m preparing a student for the TOEIC exam and found this pearl that made me look bad. Please help.
56. Many people ______ that Diana Franklin wins the election tomorrow.
Well, obviously ´like´ is out of the question, ´hope´ would call for the subjunctive ´win´ therefore it is also a no go, what about ´expect´? Should it be treated like ´hope´? And, would ´want´ be ok, if not, why?
I´m puzzled. Thanks for any help.
