Please look at the student mistakes below and do the following:
ē Good morning, sir. What's up? (Intermediate)
I canít really see what needs to be identified here, looks ok but I am told I have to relate it to the numbers below; can anyone help me here?
1. Identify what is wrong with the sentence
2. Write what probably caused the mistake
3. Identify what type of a mistake it is
4. Write how you would correct it.
Can anyone help add some critical points to this as I feel it need an extra eye?
(Note: These are all spoken mistakes. The level of the learner is written next to the sentence).

It could be that student is not aware that the expression "what's up" is a slang and cannot be used in formal contexts or with seniors, whom you address as "sir"...
