    Could you point out what I did wrong?

    Trying is very important. But human is restricted by their brain. However, when something pushes an idea of a person, he can catch his idea correctly and becomes success. For example, when I couldnít solve my problem such as math questions or test questions, I just go to the bed. After sleep, I found the answer of questions in my head. Another example is in science. According to Vonneumann, he couldnít find a chemical figure. However, when he saw a snake walking, he could solve the chemical problem.

    Is this for homework?

    Re: Could you point out what I did wrong?

    I am going to take the TOEFL so I need to improve my english writing skill for the test. If nobody tells me what I did wrong, I will never know my grammar mistakes so I am trying to ask a native speark about my english problems.

    haha27, you will remember from previous threads that proofreading requests are outwith the scope of the 'Ask A Teacher' forum.

    I have already moved some of them there myself.

    Re: Could you point out what I did wrong?

    On that very basis, I have moved this thread to "Editing and Writing Topics".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
