    Are these sentences correct:
    1-I talked to him to make him understand that he had made a mistake.
    2-I kicked him to make him fall.
    3-They hit me on the head to make me fall unconscious.

    navi tasan.
    They are all correct except your question, which requires a question mark.
    Are these sentences correct?

    #3 can be simply "... to make me unconscious" or more commonly "... to knock me out".
