    Hey, Dragongal-- nice screen name!

    Yours is fine. 'Deranged' means 'driven insane' usually. It can also mean 'disarranged', but that is not common usage. We also use it somewhat humorously-- 'I was deranged by the crowds at the end-of-year sale'.

    How can i put these definition of render and perturb into a sentence?
    Defi. of render: To reduce, convert, or melt down by heating.
    Defi. of perturb: To throw into great confusion.
    Please give examples.thankyou

    Aw, c'mon, Dragongal-- you give the sentences a try first, and then all of us experts will check them for you. That way we can better see how well you understand the grammar and usage.

    Hints: for the first sentence, 'lard' is a good word to include, and for the second sentence you could use 'mother'.
