Question

Hi,

This is a qn fr a cloze passage.

The injured pilot is ___ to the hospital. 

sent/taken/brought?

 

please help. Thanks a lot! 🙂

Answer

I would think SENT is more appropriate, although we do commonly use TAKEN and BROUGHT.

SENT is more indicative that assistance is required, eg. the victim is unconscious, so an ambulance has to be present to send the victim to the hospital.

TAKEN is more appropriate for people being taken to jail 🙂

BROUGHT is more that the victim is conscious/lucid so he is brought to the hospital.
