    Smile grammar

    I have some sentences that do not make sense can you help me?
    1. a giant monster attacted the warehouse yesterday morning the warehouse makes sneakers. --- I think this is a run-on sentence, but I am not sure.
    2. At 3 pm i will be feeding the ducks. At the park.--- I think it is a verb form and tense- but on the other hand im thinking it could be a sentence frangment.
    3. They is both happy. I think it is a subject-verb agreement
    4. This morning I watch TV before I drove here. I think it is verb form and tense.
    5. The bank robber escaped from the bank. With some money. Im thinking it is a fragment.
    6.That brand of car goes very fast, which is why many people wants them. I think it is a subject-verb agreement.
    7. Grammar quizzes can be tough there is a lot to learn it is hard to remember I find that it gets easier with practice. I think it would be a run-on sentence.
    8. Can I call you back? I am try to escape from the giant monster attacking the warehouse. I think itis subject-verb agreement.

    Can you please let me know if I got any of these correct. I have already reworte the sentences. I just need to know if I got the grammar part right or not. Thank you

    Re: grammar

    Hi, and welcome to Using English.

    8 is tense - I am trying.

    Please try to think of better titles for your threads in the future than "grammar." That will help us. Thanks.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    1. A giant monster attacted the warehouse yesterday morning_the warehouse makes sneakers.
    Correct. It's a run-on.

    2. At 3 pm I will be feeding the ducks. At the park.
    Correct. At the park a fragment.

    3. They is both happy.
    Correct. The problem is subject-verb agreement.

    4. This morning I watch TV before I drove here.
    Correct: The problem is tense.

    5. The bank robber escaped from the bank._With some money.
    Correct. With some money is a fragment.

    6. That brand of car goes very fast, which is why many people wants them.
    Correct. It's subject-verb agreement.

    7. Grammar quizzes can be tough_there is a lot to learn_it is hard to remember_I find that it gets easier with practice.
    Correct. It's a run-on sentence.

    8. Can I call you back? I am try to escape from the giant monster attacking the warehouse.
    The problem is not subject-verb agreement (the verb am agrees with the subject I). The problem, as Barb pointed out, is tense (Be + -ing: am trying).
