    showed/showing

    Dear Teachers,

    If I was gonna say,

    I had a mistake in the document "showing" A instead of B", or

    I had a mistake in the document "showed" A instead of B, or

    can I also say I had a mistake in the document showing A instead?

    please correct my grammar

    Thank you

    Re: showed/showing

    Can I only say it shows A instead, without meanings A instead of B?

    No,

    'I made a mistake in the document showing A instead.' "Instead" requires instead of <something> here. Or perhaps you could say:
    I made a mistake; I should have shown B but I showed A instead.
