Can someone please assist.
In listening section,there is a conversation in which the speaker says he has forgotten to cancel an appointment and later says it was a dentist appointment.
So if we have a ques which says what has the speaker forgotten ?
Then would it be incorrect to write cancel dentist appointment if we have a limit of 3 words for the answer.Or is it mandatory to write cancel an appointment?
