    4 and 5 are not possible, the others are all possible in the proper context.

    Re: Pls check whether my sentence is correct

    Bhai, I don't have any idea how to use 1, 2, 3 in the proper context.
    Can you write, please.

    I really don't understand the sentence.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: Pls check whether my sentence is correct

    1. I'd say 'blow on blow' is acceptable in the given context.

    2. 'The boxers traded blow for blow.'

    3. 'Her gave us a blow by blow account of the proceedings.'

    I really don't understand the sentence.
    'He received blow after blow' means 'He was hit many times'.

    Re: Pls check whether my sentence is correct

    In my opinion, without any other words in the sentence, none of them make sense. I would say that only "after" could be inserted in the space for such a short sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
