    Default Re: Find the grammatical mistakes in below sentences.

    Once again I have had to move a thread of yours, Qurban. Please post questions about English in the 'Ask a Teacher' forum in future.

    Also please note that we do not deal with a string of sentences headed by a blunt to demand to find the mistakes. We expect you to make some effort to find the problems if you want us to help you. In any case, this appears to be a homework assignment, and we don't help with those. Your teacher wants to know what you can do, not what we can do.

    Where did you find these sentences?

    As I said earlier, "We expect you to make some effort to find the problems if you want us to help you."

    I also said earlier, "Once again I have had to move a thread of yours, Qurban. Please post questions about English in the 'Ask a Teacher' forum in future." Since then you have started two more threads in an inappropriate forum. I have simply deleted them. We are happy to help, but we do expect some cooperation from you.

    Fine, but you won't improve anything if you ignore our corrections and requests for cooperation.

    Always use a capital letter for the personal pronoun I.
    Leave a space after a punctuation mark, not before it.

    We are all members here, trying to hep each other. There is no need to address anyone as Sir or Madam.

    The mistakes in the sentences you posted are to do with singular/plural nouns and verb agreement. See what you can manage with five or six, and post them here for our comments. Don't forget to begin each sentence with a capital letter.

    That's great news. We're very happy that you understand the rules of the forum.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
