    2) In air around us, the
    molecules of gas usually so far
    apart our eyes cannot
    detect them-Although a
    few, is possible to detect
    them by smell. Gases no
    firm shape form. Their molecules
    move rapidly every direction
    to fill whatever container are in.

    You appear to be having quite a few problems with these exercises. dj-dipuu. It hardly seems fair to give them to your students if you make mistakes yourself.

    Re: Grammar Check1

    The other girls went WITH all the same AS their raincoats
    This isn't correction- it's wrong, and actually hard to see the intended meaning- were their raincoats all the same or were the rest of what they were wearing the same as their raincoats?

    I slipped INTO my black dress,coatless under the rain
    There's no context that suggests why I would be getting dressed outside in the rain, so expecting someone to supply the preposition into here does not strike me as fair.
