    Re: revising of four sentences 3

    Hello,

    1. .....'jumping the queue', not 'jumping of the queue'.

    2. ....'pushing', not 're-arranging'.

    3. The queue for internet access at the airport became disorderly, with some people pushing ahead of others.

    or

    The queue for internet access at the airport became disorderly, with some people pushing others out of the way.

    4. The queue for internet access at the airport became disorderly, resulting in some people being out of turn.
