    Re: Grammar check

    1. Please give your threads meaningful titles. A paragraph on clowns, for examaple, could have worked here.

    2. Please follow the advice you were previously given about writing this as a paragraph and putting the new words in bold. You have three of them that are correct. I hope that seeing them look like normal sentences will help you with the others.

    Actually it is written in same manner in a grammar, so that is why I have written in same way. I wrote the correct answers below instead of numbers. If three are correct could you please tell me the answer of other ones ?

    Barb has already explained that setting them out as normal sentences might help you. It would also be easier for those willing to give time to help you. If you are not going to respond positively to requests to give your threads helpful titles or to make the layout of your questions more straightforward, you may find that not many people will be willing to help you.

    Re: Grammar check

    Write it as normal sentences, not stacks of lines.

    Put your answers in bold.

    Read the sentences out loud and see if anything seems wrong.

    What now Barb D ? I think you don't know the correction. That's why you'r giving lame excuses.

    Re: Grammar check

    Hmm. Where you are from, does rudeness help your cause much? It surely hasn't here. I will ignore your future requests for help, and I would be considerably surprised if my fellow moderators decided to answer you here.

    Good luck, "teacher."

    Re: Grammar check

    Given the exchange in this thread and the fact that I noticed that you had chosen to ignore our previous requests to lay the piece out in a more readable manner, I will also not be assisting you. It doesn't matter that the exercise is laid out in individual lines in its original format. We have asked you to write it out as a comprehensible sentence/paragraph before and yet you continue to post in a format that is unusable.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
