    How many suggestions are there?
    What do you use in a car's tank as fuel?
    Where do you put this?

    That's three to start - the other two are punctuation.

    Re: Sentence Correction

    I think the perfume/car exhaust is probably intentional and correct, if someone has made the "bizarre suggestion" that we can mask the smell of car exhaust fumes if we inject a spray of perfume as the exhaust fumes are emitted to make emissions smell better! A bit like those terrible floral room deodorizers.

    I get 3 punctuation, i capitalization, and two singular/plural issues.

    Say:
    Here is one of the more biizarre suggestions: add perfume to the car's exhaust system.
    Do you see where the errors were?
