I’m sorry, can you clarify your question for me? What do you mean by “When I count the pages of ‘all theme’ together?” Just explain to me the process you’re using, and I’ll do my best to help.


Best,

Hi, thanks for clarifying.


To answer your question: some lessons aren’t themed, because we only began using themes a few years ago. Older lessons don’t have any themes attached.


Hope this helps!

because if there’s one thing you can’t trust Hollywood to do, it’s give you the story straight.   I cant understand   what “it’s”  mean?

That’s an idiomatic use of “it’s”—to be perfectly grammatically correct, the sentence would read, “it’s to give you the story straight.” “It” refers to “one thing you can’t trust Hollywood to do.”

thank you very much !but I am still confused ,,IT’s  = it is ,right ?

Yes, that’s correct. So if you replaced the pronoun “it” in the sentence, the sentence would read: “One thing you can’t trust Hollywood to do is to give you the story straight.”


Does that clarify?
