    broad casted

    Sine the recent years we have been hearing about `terrorism'. Its incidents are increasingly broad casted on radios, TVs and internets. They are also read in newspapers, magazines. `Terrorism' is also debated in seminars and discussed among the people. Some unfortunates have been passed through its horrifying experiences when they were made the victims of terrorists activities of causing explosions, sudden attacks with guns and killing of innocent people for no fault of others. The rage of the terrorists make no differences among the people while killing them.


    Please explain why here broad casted used separately. Why not (broadcasted)

    Also, what does `passed through' mean in this paragraph?

    Please explain it.

    Re: broad casted

    "broadcasted" is correct - it is an error to split it.

    Some unfortunates have been passed through its horrifying experiences

    "been" is incorrectly used. The sentence should read "Some unfortunates have passed through [experienced/suffered] its horrifying experiences..."

    The rage of the terrorists make no differences among the people while killing them. This sentence is also badly written. The terrorists' [rage/fury/anger] allows for no differences in the people who are being killed.


    Whatever this piece is, it was not written by a skilled writer of English.
