I beg for your forgiveness if 'to make use of' vs 'to base on', but I would like to request its reopening. While it's from my law preparation book, my question concerns English, so why was it 'closed as off-topic'? Would someone please advise how to improve or emend it?
For example, user Tyler James Young comments:
the two are grammatically attached to different subjects, namely sources (in the passage) and a history (in the answer)
I don't understand this, because both sentences do feature 'history' as the subject?
