    Hello I need help with grammar

    Hi teachers.

    I recently joined this forum and I need help with some grammar.

    1. A has been recently created and it shows good electrical performance. ( In this sentence, both present tense: shows and present perfect tense: has been, are used. Is this sentence correct?)

    2. For chemistry vocab, "compounds are all stoichiometric" , is this sentence correct?

    I would really appreciate your help

    There is a word missing! Make it a complete sentence and we can comment.
    Don't put a space between an opening bracket and the first letter inside the brackets.


    2. For chemistry vocab, "Compounds are all stoichiometric", is this sentence correct?

    Grammatically, it's fine. I have no idea whether the statement is true or not. Don't put a space before a comma.

    I would really appreciate your help.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    ***Not a teacher***

    I don't think there is any problem with the tenses in the first sentence. Both sentences look ok, except for the fact that the subject at the beginning of the sentence seems to be missing. A what?

    Re: Hello I need help with grammar

    Thank you for your answers.

    What I wanted to ask for the first question is

    A substance has been recently created and it shows good electrical performance.

    In that sentence, both present perfect tense and present tense are used. Is this right sentence?

    Yes, it is.

    Please ask your second, unrelated question in a separate thread, with a useful title, such as Compounds are all stoichiometric.
