    (the) and (of)

    Do the and of come together like this (the parts of head)
    Or the correct is parts of head without (the)

    The format of your post makes it hard to read (as does the lack of punctuation). Please see my amendments above.

    "The parts of head" is incorrect. It's not a full sentence but if you were to write a full sentence regarding the face, skull, nose, eyes, brain etc, you would say something like "I am going to write about the [different] parts of the head".

    You might see "Parts of head" or "Parts of the head" as a picture caption or a very short chapter/paragraph title in a book about biology, but it's not a full sentence and would mean nothing in a normal context.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    No. Ems has already told you this, and given you two possible versions.

    She also made corrections to your mistakes - some of which you then repeated in your post above. There is little point in our trying to help you if you ignore what we say.
