So -that structure

Post by pdh0224 » Wed Oct 06, 2004 8:56 pm

Dear teacher,

There had been so much confidence that Mr. Rutan's craft would successfully complete its mission that the X Prize Foundation, which has planned for a day like this since its founding in 1996, scheduled an awards ceremony Nov. 6.

Q : Does the clause "that the X prize...." mean the result of

the event or the extent of "so"?

All the best, :)

It specifies the extent of 'so'.
