    Default Make + Failed

    Hi,

    Can I write as follows?

    "I read your theorem yesterday. There were many mistakes in it. Certainly, those mistakes make your proof failed."

    Would you tell me if I can use to make + v+ed like that?

    Thanks.

    A nice week to our forum's Members.

    No. Either:

    Certainly those mistakes mean your proof failed.

    OR


    Certainly those mistakes make your proof fail.

    You can say:
    Those mistakes make your proof suspect.

    Hi 'Professors' Anglika and RonBee,

    Without your comments, my paragraph was too bad.

    Thanks
