    Post Usage of WRONG at the end

    Hi,

    Are these sentences appropriate? Is the usage of wrong at the end of sentence correct?

    I filled the name of the person for the booking wrong.

    I wrote the name of the person wrong.

    What should be a better sentence to express the same thought?

    Thanks

    Rather than the adjective "wrong" you should use the adverb "wrongly"
    which in the first example modifies "I filled in the name" and in the second "I wrote the name".
