Let me just say somethin...hotstartup said:whose really good at essays
Yeah, "who's good at essays" doesn't work either because there isn't a second verb. There should be another verb where the X is in: "who's really good at X essays", for example, "who's really good at writing essays" would work. But in "who's really good at essays" the second verb is ommited leaving it up for the reader to decide.FF Drifter said:You can, however, say "who's really good at essays?" which would be colloquial (although technically incorrect) use of contractions. In this case, "who's" is a contraction of "who is," so it'd be okay to use that.
Yes, I said "it'd" as another colloquial contraction.
