What is the meaning of “sure if” in this sentence

Post by kkavcar » Wed Jun 24, 2020 9:28 am

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to learn reading on my own but it is so tough sometimes.

Please help me with this question.

I couldn't find the meaning of “sure if” in any dictionary. “Genuinely modest, but always sure if his ambitions and achievements.” Isn't it should be "sure of"?

It’s a typo. Should be “sure in”, meaning something like “confident regarding”.

Genuinely modest, but always sure in his ambitions and achievements. :ok:
