    various

    please i would like to know when to say 1) dozen
    2) a dozen
    like in
    Joe gave Mary a couple of teddy bears and then dozen /a dozen flowers

    also
    what is the tag question for
    Joe has a new pair of shoes

    is this sentence right?
    of all the jobs Joe could have chosen ,he regrets hasn't joined the police
    i feel hasn't joined is wrong and if so what is the right form?

    and the last thing does (a political savvy) considered (personality or behavier)


    thanks for your care

    Re: various

    Welcome to the forums.

    Please create new posts for your other unrelated questions. Grouping unrelated questions into one post will create a confusing thread.

    Additionally, please remember that proper English requires capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and that the pronoun "I" is always capitalized.

    I will answer your first question.

    You say "a dozen" or "dozens" but not "dozen." The same with "score" which means 20. He gave her ... a dozen flowers.

    I would ask further posters NOT answer the other questions here and wait for the new threads so this doesn't become a tangle of crossing posts on different themes.

    Re: various

    When you ask questions on separate topics, you should make a new post for each one. Otherwise, the thread becomes a mess. One person answers one question, the next person answers the third question, someone else replies to the first question, the next person answers the second question... trust me, it's the better thing to do.

    Also, please remember that sentences in English start with a capital letter.
