    Please correct these sentences

    Please let me know which of the following are correct or all are wrong.

    1.An experiment helped light a village (or) An experiment help to light a village?

    2.I didn't receive the letter (or) I haven't receive the letter

    3.They have told me that they will reprocess my application (or) They told me they will reprocess my application

    I'm confused about using have and has..... I use sentences like 'I have applied instead of i applied' , 'i have read instead of i read'

    Please correct me

    Please correct me.

    Sometimes, context or the timeline of the piece might dictate which to use but as standalone sentences, all of your examples are correct with the slight corrections I have marked in red.

    Remember to use correct capitalisation and punctutation in your posts.

    As I said, make sure your punctuation is correct. Every sentence must end with the appropriate punctuation mark.

    Can I use "they all are correct" for "they are all correct"?

    No, it's not a natural word order.
