    Please see the amendments in red above.

    I agree with Gillnetter that they are both perfectly acceptable.

    Can I write "red amendments" ?
    I think neither of these sentences is a kind of question as the creator of this thread asked.
    Thank you very much !

    Personally, I wouldn't say "red amendments". I could have simply said "Please see my amendments" but I find it helpful to point out that they are "in red" simply in case the OP has used a variety of colours as sometimes happens.

    I don't know what you mean by "I think neither of these sentences is a kind of question as the creator of this thread asked". Do you mean that you think we haven't answered the original question? If so, then I disagree. We have answered the question and made useful corrections to the original.

    No, your answers are so great. I mean the sentences (written by this thread owner) "He took us out to lunch" and "He took us out for lunch" are not questions, these are only statements.

    "...which one of these

    questions

    ..." should be "...which one of these
    sentences

    ..." or we can understand "questions" as "sentences", can't we ?
    Please review the OP.
    Thank you very much !

    Ah! I understand. Well spotted. You're quite right. It should have said "Please tell me which of these sentences is correct".
