    1.The decorated roof of the building was carried/supported -up by four thin columns. If you delete "up", this is fine.

    2.would it agree/like -you if you came on Sunday? This doesn't make sense.

    3.the form has got/doesn't need -be handed in until the end of week. These two contradict each other and "to" is necessary before ""be".

    4.If you make a mistake when you are writing,just cross/clear - it out with your pen. Correct.

    5. although our opinions on many things oppose /differ -,we're good friends. Wrong.

    6.The product must be eaten within/by two days of purchase. Correct.

    7.The newspaper report contained a lot of/many - important information. Correct.

    8.Have you considered moving /to be moving - to London? Correct.
    Bhai.

    1.The decorated roof of the building was carried/supported
    -up by four thin columns. 'Supported' is better, but 'carried' is not impossible.

    wWould it agree/like -you if you came on Sunday? Neither.

    There's no real 'battle'. It's just that bhaisahab and I quite often seem to post out answers at very nearly the same moment. (When we are writing a message, we can't see that somebody else is also writing - it's only when we submit our own that we see that somebody else has posted a similar message.)
