    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Your best bet would be to post them one at a time. People are more likely to respond if you limit yourself to one sentence per thread.

    I agree that one question at a time would be better. I am interested to hear how you decided whether to use "Thank" or "Thanks" at the beginning of each sentence. I can't see any pattern which explains your choices.

    Summeradmas, please remember that if you are going to respond, you must state in your posts that you are not a teacher. You need to use correctly written English, concentrating on capitalisation and punctuation. There are more problems with the original question than you suggest.
