    TEST yoour eyes,thanks

    excerpt, complaining about the dining room.please help get it corrected.

    As the majority of students have no choice but to eat in the dining room,money can still be made if the dining room takes no effort to improve quality of food.The dining room should pay attention to providing better services and tasted food.It is high time that the dining romm changed their idea of management.We are looking forward to the day.

    At least 3 mistakes in it.Whatever mistakes,just find them out.Thanks in advance.

    to improve quality of food---what about adding "the",making it "to improve the quality of food".

    Sorry, yes- that's better, but how about 'the quality of the food'?

    thanks,but the correct change is :
    1st not edit "take an effort" but add the between "improve"and "quality"

    2 change "their" to "its",in the last line.(I personally can't agree with this.)
