    Do you mean plug - the end of an appliance that we insert into an electric socket?
    plug - definition of plug by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    What is the name of that thing?

    2- The word bachelor means sing or a certificate but do I pronounce it (ch) as channel when I want to refer to both meanings.

    Where did you find the word bachelor means sing? I can't seem to find it. The phonemic transcript is for example here (its "tch"). bachelor - definition of bachelor by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.



    3 - What is the name of the part of the street where pedestrains walk on.

    a pavement?

    4- Are these sentences correct?

    1- I would rather go home walking than riding a bus/ I prefer to go home by walking to riding a bus.

    First seems ok.
    In the second, you had better use the gerund form of "go" therefore "going" as the word "prefer" is connected with it rather than with an infinitive. Howerer, in coloquial forms you can sometimes find the 'incorrect' one.

    Then: I prefer going home by walk/by walk/walking to riding a bus.



    2- Thanks in (advance or advanced)


    the first one is right

    3- He considers himself superior to the opponents.

    yeah correct

    4- How much do you wieght/ What is your weight?

    How much do you weigh?

    or

    What is your weight?

    weigh - verb
    weight - noun

    1- I would rather go home walking than riding a bus

    2- I prefer going home by walk/by walk/walking to riding a bus

    by walking or walking alone

    Could you tell me where is the direct object and indirect object or the syntaxs.

    so I can form sentences more easily

    * How often do you weigh yourself? I weigh myself in the morning and when I go to bed at night.

    * How much do you weigh? I currently weigh 167 pounds.
