    ***** 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.

    Re: It is thanks to

    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.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    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.
