    You know by now that we don't do your work for you. What do you think the answer is?

    It's good to hear that you are here to learn. The best way to learn is to try very hard yourself. It doesn't matter if you get it wrong. If you can't work out which one is wrong, then presumably you can show us how they are all correct. Look at all the underlined sections and then tell us (with examples) how they are correct.

    I can assure you that all the volunteers here want to help, but we make it very clear in the rules that we do not just give you the answers.

    The original piece you posted said "For decades" - this is correct. It means "For many periods of ten years each ..."

    So - we have discounted that the first underlined phrase is the error. Try again (and this time please explain why you think it's wrong).

    Also, please look at the amendments I have made to your post in red. In written English, it is very important to:

    - Start every new sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with the appropriate punctuation (full stop, question mark, exclamation mark).

    Re: ask for help

    Hi thank you.
    The third is correct because it is adjective and after that there is a noun
    so the second is incorrect
    Thank you.

    OK, you are correct that the second underlined section is incorrect. It was "... the food industry has been known serving up sugary or fat-laden products ..."

    Why is it wrong? And can you correct it?

    So you only worked out it was wrong by finding out that the other two were correct? What do you know about the tense construction that has been used?
