    Prepositions

    Hi, are the following sentences correct?
    1-This matter must be treated at discretion.
    2-Thank you for being hospitable to my grandmother.
    3-The police had mercy on the young hooligans and sent them home.

    Thank you

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