Olá pessoal,

Eu gostaria de compartilhar uma dúvida que há tempos tem me perturbado, e agora não há mais como seguir sem que ela seja esclarecida. Trata-se da preposição “of”. Quando devo omiti-la e usá-la de fato? Por exemplo:

E outros exemplos que vocês acharem relevantes.

Um abraço a todos,

Prepositions and definite articles Oct 17, 2011

Your first options are correct in all three cases, but the use of the definitive article in no. 3 is probably incorrect unless you are referring to specific tensions, which are problably already identified in the text. In PT the definite article is used to refer to something in general terms e.g. "os médicos curam mais do que matam", while in EN the definite article is not used, e.g. "doctors cure more than they kill".
