Excuse me, what does GROUND mean here, is it working as a noun here?


to grind: past= ground, participle= ground


"grinded" does occur in some books, but is very much less common.

Simon sir,
I humbly request you to include your writing and speaking model answers with band descriptors in the end. I mean to say "what the examiners are looking for" so that we, intermediate level students, understand well and it is very beneficial for us to write in the same as per your guideline.Hope, you will read my post and consider it.Thank you so much for helping us.

Hi Simon, this is very impressing you have written the task. I got an idea now how to present this task. I wanted to thank you for this service you are providing to the students.

Hi Simon, In the first paragraph shouldn't it be "the process of cement manufacturing?" instead of cement manufacture.


The two given diagram shows the process and the tools used to manufacture concrete, and how cement is engaged in manufacturing concrete for construction needs.

The first stage of producing cement is by crushing 2 martial namely Limestone and Clay after they are crushed they will go into a mixer along with the powder. Afterwards, all the mixed items will be processed in a rotating heater, where the heat is generated by a heater. The final step after the heating process is grinding, and then cement is ready to be bagged and shipped.

The second diagram draws attention to the formula of producing concrete by mixing 10%water, 15% cement, 25% sand, and 50% gravel into a concrete blender, then after the blind process is finished the concrete is ready for construction use.

Overall, there are five steps to produce cement. Also, in order for concrete to be produced, it requires at least 15% of cement.

Well done,

why did you write "crushed to form A powder"? Is 'powder' a countable noun?


'Powder' can be countable or uncountable. In this case I'm referring to "one particular type of powder" (countable), not an amount of powder (uncountable).

Thank you, Simon!
