    error analysis.

    She steps into life which is different from her childhood.

    They teamed up together again on the silver screen.

    After her husband being kidnapped, she led a daring rescue team into an enemy's lair.

    If now, why ?

    Thank you

    Hello tedtmc,

    Your help and contributions are more than welcome and greatly appreciated. However, we try not to do homework assignments.

    It's best if posters provide their answers first, or at least state why they think the sentences are grammatical or ungrammatical.

    All the best.

    That's fair enough Casiopea. Guess I'm still new here.

    So, there are schoolkids who make use of this site to help do their homework eh?

    Re: error analysis.

    Hello, thank you all,

    When I had these sentences in my head, I did not trust myself whether they were correct or not. It seemed to me in grammar, they were fine. But in terms of idioms I felt they still were not correct. So I posted here.

    Once again, thank you Casiopea and tedmec.

    In that case, Alanmo, try,

    1. She steps into a life, different from her childhood.

    2. After her husband was kidnapped, she led a daring rescue team into the enemy's lair.
