    Hello Friends,
    I have just given an exam in which we were given some sentences and had to point out the errors if any
    1 This watch is superior and more expensive than that one.
    2 No other newspaper has so large a circulation like this newspaper in India.
    4 Each boy and girl in the class bring a text book each day.
    5 Though she appears to be very tall she is just an inch taller than me.
    I would be very thankful if you help me by pointing out the errors.
    Thanks very much

    Re: Grammar

    Hi Abhish,

    If you still have to submit the answers, please ask us again when you are given the corrections if there's anything you don't understand. Your teacher wants to know what you can do, not what we can do (that's cheating, and we just don't do that).

    If you know the correct answers and something bothers you about what your teacher has corrected, please let us know what it is and we will try to help you.

    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Re: Grammar

    Feel free to tell us what you think the errors are and we can tell you how many of them you have right or wrong. As charliedeut said, if you have yet to submit the exam to your teacher, we won't actually give you the correct answers but at least you will know if you are on the right track.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
