    I have an exam tomorrow and I can't understand this grammar.
    Thank you very much.
    Good luck in your exam tomorrow. Before you take the exam, make sure you look carefully at the changes I made to your post, marked above in red.

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Do not put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark, exclamation mark.
    - Put a space after a full stop, comma, question mark, exclamation mark.
    - Do not put a space after opening quotation marks.
    - Do not put a space before closing quotation marks.

    If you fail to follow those basic rules of written English, you will lose a lot of marks for very silly mistakes.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
