I would like to ask you whether this sentence is correct?

Although immigrants have positive effect on the society, the converse can also be true.

Can I use 'converse' instead of 'in opposite' or 'in contrast'?

Thanks

A "quantum leap" means a huge jump or a huge change.

Hi Felora,

"the converse can also be true" is a good phrase. You could use "the opposite" but NOT "in opposite".

Also, don't forget to write "have A positive effect on".

All the best

Thanks Simon.

No problem.

Hi Simon,

Can i use the phrase "quantum leap" in this sentence: "That the higher positions the female get in companies is a quantum leap in women's equality"

Thank you very much for your help.
Your exercise is very useful to us.
UT

Hi UT,

It's not wrong, but I probably wouldn't use it in that case. 'Quantum leap' is a very extreme expression - maybe you could say that it was a quantum leap for equality when women were first able to vote.
