Hello Amy,
I hope all's well with you. I have a question for you. Are the following sentences grammatically correct and do they make sense?
1. China's censorship is strict.
2. Spontaneity is a good thing.
3. I spent countless hours studying; thus, I was well equipped for the exam.
4. I spent countless hours studying; thus, I was well equipped to take the exam.
I greatly appreciate your help.
Sincerely,
Glen

Answer
Hi Glen,

good to hear from you.

Your sentences:

1. China's censorship is strict. correct

2. Spontaneity is a good thing. correct

3. I spent countless hours studying; thus, I was ready/well prepared for the exam.

4. I spent countless hours studying; thus, I was ready to take the exam.

I wouldn't say "well equipped" in the context above, so I suggested some alternatives for you.

I hope this helps.

Best,
