Mensagem:  Hi everybody, I understand the meaning of the following, but I'd like to know why the sentence below is structured the way it is? The Ad says: "Does this sound too good to be true? It's not!" I got the meaning but I'd like to learn why "It's not!" means that the sales pitch in the ad is rather honest. I've also seen in some articles: "Does this sound too good to be true? It is!" meaning that in such case the Ad was misleading. Could the experts at the EMB Forum please explain? Thanks is advance, Fran
